Scott’s Refrigerated Logistics’ remaining fleet goes up for sale

Following the collapse of Scott’s Refrigerated Logistics earlier this year, the company’s remaining fleet assets are set to be auctioned off.  

Some 220 assets, including 80 prime movers and 130 refrigerated trailers, will be up for sale through the Gordon Brothers Ritchie Bros. Alliance.  

Bidding is set to open on November 6, 2023, while the official auction will be held online via IronPlanet on November 14.  

Andrew Cotton, head of the Gordon Brothers Ritchie Bros. Alliance, said the auction is a “valuable opportunity” for those in the transport industry looking to add to their fleet. 

“We are honored to oversee the Receivers’ Auction of Scott’s Refrigerated Logistics’ assets,” he said.

“This presents a valuable opportunity for participants in the industry to acquire prime movers and refrigerated trailers. The auction will be conducted on IronPlanet, providing a transparent and accessible platform for interested buyers.” 

He said the team are confident they will secure the best possible outcome for all stakeholders. 

“With our extensive network of industry connections and expertise in managing auctions, we are well-positioned to achieve optimal results for both buyers and sellers,” he added. 

Scott’s Refrigerated Logistics went into liquidation earlier this year.

As well as the prime movers and trailers, the auction will include eight truck parts and attachments, two tautliners and two fuel and product tanks. 

Some items of particular interest include a 2020 Kenworth K200 Aerodyne 6×4 and a selection of 2017-2018 Freightliners. 

Assets are situated at various locations across Australia, with GBRB Alliance urging customers to “inspect onsite, bid online”. 

Scott’s Refrigerated Logistics was one of the country’s largest suppliers of cold storage and refrigerated transport, delivering frozen foods to major supermarket chains including Coles, Woolworths and Aldi. 

The company was placed into voluntary administration in February this year, after recording monthly losses of $8 million on average from 2021 onwards.
