Business as usual for Port Botany operator after Medlog deal


Medlog has announced plans to buy Port Botany-based transport operator Trojan Transport.

Medlog, a logistics and supply chain giant operating in more than 70 countries, said the acquisition would “complement and enhance” its international services and its container logistics offerings in Australia.

In a statement announcing the deal, Medlog Oceania COO Ned Zver stressed that it will be business as usual at Trojan which was established in Sydney in 1978 and has a fleet of 26 trucks operating from its 9000 square-metre site at the port.

“Whilst this acquisition provides further growth and development for Medlog, there are no changes to existing procurement, transport and logistics services with Trojan Transport and existing customers,” Zver said.

“This includes, but is not limited to the servicing of works, execution of payment processes and agreed term.

“The combined team at Medlog and Trojan Transport remain committed to providing all clients with the highest quality customer service you have come to expect, whilst adapting logistical services to meet evolving needs.”

Trojan Transport provides specialised container transport, warehousing, distribution and storage throughout NSW.

Medlog has operated in Australia since 2008 and is part of the MSC group.

In the latest newsletter to Road Freight NSW (RFNSW) members, CEO Simon O’Hara said he welcomed Medlog to the RFNSW membership and congratulated Paul Downey, general manager of Trojan Transport on the consolidation and his ongoing work with Medlog.
