Western Australia’s oldest family-owned business has won a contract to provide local inbound freight transport services for German supermarket chain Aldi, which is planning to open its first Perth stores next year.

Sadleirs Logistics will provide freight pick-up and container cartage haulage from Fremantle Port to Aldi’s distribution centre at Jandakot Airport.

The value of the contract was not disclosed.

The distribution centre is under construction and is expected to be completed by April next year, with Sadleirs’ services to commence from May.

In a statement, Sadleirs said it would hire additional drivers and support personnel, as well as make an investment in its own fleet, as a result of the contract.

Chief executive Neil David said the company was excited to be part of Aldi’s expansion into WA.

Sadleirs are already servicing some of the suppliers to Aldi which will assist forging relationships across the entire local supply chain,” he said.

“I see this partnership as a unique and sustainable opportunity, delivering to the retail space through niche services with strong supplier relationships being key to both parties.”

In the same statement, Aldi said it wanted to engage with a provider that had a good transport and warehouse network, was customer focused and shared the same company values.

Sadleirs was an excellent fit and this partnership is testament to our commitment of supporting local businesses within WA,” it said.
