Global logistics and shipping provider Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics (WWL) hopes to grow its vehicle and customisation services following the takeover of SRO Manufacturing in September.

Based in Newcastle, the division is part of the broader WWL Technical Services offering.

WWL Oceania Commercial Vice President Mark Guscott says customers have welcomed the acquisition of SRO and now means WWL can provide solutions for service bodies, truck trays, tool boxes and safety equipment.

Guscott expects tapping into the manufacturing market will reduce supply chain complexity and make it easier for customers to access specialised services in Australia.

The move is expected to cut costs and lead times.

"By removing steps in the supply chain you actually increase the control and by increasing control over the process you have a better possibility delivering quality and delivering to the specification of the customer," Guscott says.

WWL imports more than 2,500 trucks to Australia each year and services some 20 manufacturers.
