The group completed its acquisition of the joint venture earlier this year, and now fully operates a network of 23 logistics facilities with over 20 distribution centres, delivering to more than 1,600 cities across the country. Toll Global Logistics will have its Greater China regional headquarters in Shanghai.

Main capabilities include turnkey logistics management, engineering consultancy, design assistance, equipment erection, ultra haulage, skidding, ship and barge operations, ballast engineering and hazardous cargo.
