Melbourne-based logistics provider Tasman Logistics Services is aiming to significantly grow its share of the container haulage market over the next three years.

The firm, which established itself 11 years ago to offer rail, road, shipping, freight forwarding, warehousing and wharf cartage services, has grown steadily largely due to word of mouth.

Managing Director Craig Morris has used his wide contacts to win new customers after having worked for Tasman Group, TNT Express, Linfox and Patrick.

Tasman Logistics moves around 16,000 containers annually, but Morris hopes to grow the number to 25,000 within the next three years. He is banking on the company’s competitive prices to help grow the firm’s workload.

"I think one of things that a lot of our customers enjoy is the fact that we’re a reasonable size business, we can handle a large volume and we pretty much run like a family business and the service is personalised," he says.

Morris joined his mentor and former Tasman Group Managing Director Joe Catalfamo in establishing the import and export company.

The pair started out in a small office with only two mobile phones and now has depots in Launceston and Perth.
