- BIS Industries Ltd
- 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
ACCC commenced review under the Merger Review Process Guidelines.
Closing date for submissions from interested parties.
ACCC announced it would not oppose the proposed acquisition.
