New Costa Logistics CEO Tim Bolam has laid out an aggressive growth strategy for the Victorian logistics group, kick-started by new contracts with Parmalat and Simplot.

Bolam reveals the warehousing and distribution deals with the companies will initially boost revenue by 5 percent.

Speaking to ATN, Bolam - who has only been in the top job since March this year after working at European 3PLs - says the contracts are the first in a barrage of new work to come as part of a new three-year strategy.

The CEO vows to triple revenue over the three years, which currently sits at $95 million annually.

The contract with diary manufacturer Pamalat will see Costa manage distribution centres, pick-and-pack food stuffs and distribute throughout New South Wales.

The Simplot deal, which commences next month, is a similar arrangement but more focused on local distribution throughout Victoria, Bolam says.

Bolam says his ambitious plan is in-line with the Costa Group strategy to grow locally and internationally.
