I seem to remember volvo taking over BRS i think it was part of exel logistics.

The post office or was it parcel force was taken over by deutsche post.

Deutsche Post World Net, is the world's largest logistics group. With its headquarters in Bonn, the corporation has 520,000 employees in more than 220 countries and territories worldwide and generated revenue of € 63.5 billion ($ 97.8 billion) in 2007. Deutsche Post is the successor to the former German state-owned mail monopoly, but has significantly expanded its business area through acquisitions since its privatisation in 1995.

DHL Express (originally standing for Dalsey, Hillblom and Lynn), is a division of Deutsche Post World Net providing international express mail.

A salvesen driver from scotland recently told me that Norbert Dentresangle were in negotiations to aquire Salvesens.

Info is recent but perhaps not right up to date - Norbert employs 29,000 people and has a turnover of 1.8 billion euros.

Bibby Distribution, whom I worked for for nearly 12 years, must be in the top ten. The usual problem, they have a lot of motors running in thier customers colours. EG Kellogs & Nisa to name but two.
As an aside, they bought out Alexander Molyneaux Haulage many years ago.

Best wishes to all, Robert

I'm not sure who is biggest as per fleet in Australia, but there would be a few contenders that readily come to mind.
Toll is probably Oz's biggest logistics player now, operating not only a massive and fast growing truck fleet, but also the nations largest rail freight company Pacific National ( my bread and butter), and a big share of the wharves after annexing Patricks Corp.
But solely on the roads, Linfox, Bunker, Booth, McColls and Scotts certainly have their hats in the ring.
Its an interesting subject, something I will have to find time to research.
Cheers John

That'll make for an interesting comparison when the next one is released. Macfarlanes gone and Irlam's taken over by Stobart. It was surprising to see that Bibby's are higher up the (current) list than Sobart.
