Tasman Logistics Services’ connection with Melbourne’s west has been strengthened via a partnership with new A-League entity Western United.

Tasman’s CEO Ivan Vanis is from a footballing family, with father Vlado a two-time National Soccer League (NSL) champion with the Melbourne Knights.

The company’s strong local footprint in the city’s west comprises bases in Derrimut and Brooklyn, and now includes a partnership with Western United’s Chairman’s Club – which aims to be a conduit between sport and business through networking opportunities.

"We are proud to partner with Western United in their inaugural season and are looking forward to being a part of the team’s success in the years to come," Vanis says.

"It never felt right following any existing A-League teams, however when United was announced it felt perfect due to not only the location, but also the people behind the club.

"We have built a quality business from the ground up over the years and it feels special to be a partner of Western United and being a part of the journey ahead."

Sport and transport have intertwined before, with Fyfe Transport one example

Western United CEO Chris Pehlivanis says like the new club, Tasman Logistics Services is a growing local story in Western Melbourne.

 "We are delighted to have Tasman Logistics Services partner with our club. Like us, they are based in the West of Melbourne and are passionate about what they do," Pehlivanis says.

"We look forward to having them as presenting partner of our new Chairman’s Club."
