South Australian Express Freight and Logistics company, Peter Cochrane Transport, recently announced that it has signed a formal agreement to purchase the shares and assets of Scholz Transport Services (STS), which will be effective 1 November.

The acquisition will include the incorporation of STS (Aust) Pty Ltd and STS Refrigerated Pty Ltd.

Scholz Transport Services Founders, Dave and Eddie Scholz, will report to Peter Cochrane Transport CEO, Bruce Hampson, as they continue to drive the STS business.

“The acquisition of the STS companies and the excellent reputation they have built in the market is key to growing our position as the leading provider of transport solutions to Regional South Australia,” said Hampson.

“Cochrane’s will offer a wider range of services to STS customers while maintaining the high standards they have come to expect from Scholz,” he said.

“When we first discussed this opportunity with Dave and Eddie Scholz, we quickly saw that they shared our passion for being a private and independent high-quality service provider focussed on the needs of Regional South Australia,” said Peter Cochrane Transport Chairman and Owner, Peter Cochrane.

“They should be proud of the business they have built, and we look forward to them playing a vital role in its further growth and development within the Cochrane’s Group,” he said.

Father and son team, Dave and Eddie Scholz, will reportedly continue to work in the STS business along with all current staff.
