ACFS Port Logistics have now integrated the business operations effective immediately.
The addition of 54,000sqm of warehousing and 16,000sqm of container Storage, as well as a transport fleet of higher productivity vehicles further expands the ACFS service offering within the Port of Brisbane and to the broader import and export market in Queensland.
“We are excited to welcome the IPS team members to the ACFS family, and proud to see our Brisbane footprint expand significantly so that we can continue to extend the proven benefits that ACFS is known for,” the company said in a statement.
Associated Customs and Forwarding Services (ACFS) was established in 2005 by Arthur and Terry Tzaneros in 2005 and handles more than 1.2 million TEU movements per annum.
The business employs more than 1,200 staff nationally.
