SummaryToll Transport Pty Ltd proposes to acquire the NSW regional road and warehousing businesses conducted by Patrick Container Ports Pty Ltd.
Market definitionThe markets for dedicated dangerous goods warehousing in regional NSW, including the Dubbo, Moree and Wagga Wagga regions.
Competition analysisToll is active in dangerous goods logistics through Toll Chemical Logistics which distributes dangerous goods throughout Australia with warehouses in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adeliade and Perth.
