- Gulf Transport Pty Ltd
Market definitionThe ACCC considered the proposed acquisition in the context of a national market for the supply of off-road haulage services to the mining industry.
Competition analysisThe ACCC considered that the proposed acquisition was unlikely to result in a substantial lessening of competition due to:
- the significant number of rival haulage companies remaining post-acquisition
- the ability of mining companies, to some extent, to conduct haulage operations themselves rather than outsourcing these services to haulage companies
