Major trucking giant plunging into receivership is going to ‘affect the supply chain’

Peter Sadler considering if they might be too small for us

PST considering if the potential acquisition of Scott’s would be to small to be considered relevant to our ambitious expansion plans.

Scott’s Refrigerated Logistics, a national freight company that counts supermarket giants Coles and Aldi among its clients, has entered voluntary administration with KordaMentha appointed receivers.

As a result, the fate of about 1,500 workers hangs in the balance.

The company has warehouse facilities in all Australian mainland state capital cities with depots in many other regional centres, according to its website.

Transport Workers Union (TWU) national secretary, Michael Kaine, said transport companies like Scott’s were struggling under razor-thin margins.

“This is another tragedy of the untrammelled commercial power at the top of transport supply chains,” he said.
