Doble Express Transport acquires JLS Express

  • Posted on Wednesday 11th, April 2018.

New South Wales freight company, Doble Express Transport (DXT), has acquired Sydney-based freight company, JLS Express, reportedly making it the single-largest dedicated express transport operation in the state.

Doble Express Transport General Manager, Matthew Collier, has formally announced the finalisation of the acquisition.

“This acquisition enables us to combine the network reach and first class experience of these two businesses to both customer groups,” said Collier.

“We’re now the premier road transport provider in the state and I’m excited for what this means for our customers, staff, and suppliers.

“These two businesses have truly started from the ground up and through this acquisition we’re now in the position to expand to better meet customers’ needs. This is the next step of our growth strategy and it’s a win for customers.

“It’s also an exciting time in the NSW freight landscape at the moment with a lot of movement in the last 6 months as interstate businesses have adapted to growing demands in regional areas,” he said.

Mitch Doble, Managing Director at Doble Express Transport, will continue to lead the business through the transition as it integrates systems, processes and operations.

“We will continue to offer the same level of expertise customers have come to expect, while we focus on integrating our front-end solutions and behind the scenes operations,” said Doble.

“Customers will benefit from the amalgamation as this will mean more Company-run sites than any other dedicated NSW provider. They will also be serviced by a dedicated fleet for greater reach, transparency, and network strength.

“The combined fleet will also provide scalability and enormous capabilities for pickups in all parts of Sydney metro and significantly boost our linehaul capacity into regional NSW.” he said.

JLS Express services a number of large customers in the Sydney metropolitan area and regional NSW, according to Jason McHenry, Managing Director at JLS Express.

“I believe DXT was the right fit to merge the JLS Express business with because I could see that we both had the same vision to have the number one service in NSW,” said McHenry.

“We have always supported each other in our core areas and found the business philosophies were very similar, so I knew that combining them would mean a greater experience for our customer and allow us to realise our vision of being NSW’s premier transport company,” he said.
