Toll marches into China

Toll has continued its expansion into Asia with the full takeover of Shenzen-based St-Anda Logistics.
The Toll Group has now reached agreement with China Merchants Group to acquire all the remaining 49% shares in Shenzhen-based St-Anda Logistics.
“The Toll Group has for some time considered our Chinese logistics operations to be of strategic significance to Toll’s international business. We now have operations in over 50 countries globally and China is a critical element of our growth strategy” said Toll Group managing director Paul Little.
ST-Anda operates an extensive logistics network across mainland China with warehouses and depots in more than 30 cities, and a distribution network reaching over 1,500 cities across the country.
“Moving ST-Anda to a wholly owned subsidiary will give Toll the opportunity to better integrate our operations within China and to offer a more seamless total logistics solution to our existing customers both within China and in a global setting.
“Toll Group’s customers in China include some of the largest global FMCG manufacturers such as Colgate Palmolive and Johnson & Johnson. Complete ownership of this business allows us to better relate to these major customers on a global basis,” said Mr Little.
The acquisition remains subject to Chinese regulatory approvals, which are anticipated to take three to six months to obtain.
