Prime movers go under hammer after merger between Adelaide operators

Eades Transport and Adelaide Refrigerated are merging to form AR Logistics, with 20 prime movers to now go under the hammer with Ritchie Bros.

AR Logistics general manager Moz says the merger is a “significant milestone” for the operations.

“Combining two successful freight companies will give our customers more access to carriers across Australia,” he said in a media statement.

“As part of this merger, we have decided to adjust our fleet and consign 20 prime movers to Ritchie Bros. National Unreserved End-of-Year Auction on November 30-December 1. I would like to thank Ritchie Bros. for their help facilitating this transition.”

Ritchie Bros. territory manager Jack Massey says he feels privileged to have been given the opportunity to manage this major fleet realignment dispersal for AR Logistics.

“Moz has sold equipment through our auctions previously and through those positive experiences has entrusted us once again.”

“With over 1100 assets already consigned to the National Unreserved End-of-Year Auction, and more being added daily, we’re expecting a lot of interest. With record-high demand for quality transport equipment, Moz has decided now is the perfect opportunity to readjust his fleet with confidence.”

The trucks from AR Logistics in this dispersal include:

2020 Kenworth K200 Aerodyne 6×4 Sleeper Prime Mover
2019 Kenworth T909 6×4 Sleeper Prime Mover
8 x 2021-2011 Kenworth K200 Aerodyne 6×4 Sleeper Prime Mover
2 x 2016-2014 Kenworth K200 Big Cab Aerodyne Sleeper Prime Mover
3 x 2016-2015 DAF XF105 6×4 Sleeper Prime Mover
2019 Scania R500 6×4 Sleeper Prime Mover
2012 Volvo FH16 Globetrotter 6×4 Sleeper Prime Mover
2015 Mack CLXT Superliner 6×4 Sleeper Prime Mover
1988 Kenworth T650 6×4 Sleeper Prime Mover
1994 Kenworth T600 6×4 Sleeper Prime Mover

“With a commitment to our customers, we have recently invested in the purchase of 15 V8 Scanias in preparation for a promising future,” added Moz.

“We are confident the unreserved auction will bring strong interest given the presentation and service history of the fleet, and the long wait times for trucks.”
