Aussie acquisition for Hillebrand

Published:  07 October, 2010

German-based drinks logistics giant JF Hillebrand has brought the Australian wine freight forwarder John Crack Freight Services.

Adelaide-based JCFS provides forwarding services to a number of Australian wineries and operates an 8,000 square metre warehousing and container packing depot.

Michael Frogbrook, Hillebrand's managing director for Australia and New Zealand, said: "The acquisition presents both companies with a unique opportunity to further enhance levels of specialist service to customers across Australia."

JCFS will retain its own identity and existing structure, and customer contacts will remain unchanged.

JCFS managing director John Crack said: "Becoming part of the Hillebrand group will provide business development opportunities and enable us to better serve our customers' future requirements.

"Our clients will enjoy a wider selection of route options and improved access to space and equipment, supported by Hillebrand's global network and information management systems."
