Booth's Transport buys Tomoana Warehousing

7 November 2019

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT - We have some VERY exciting news!


To all valued customers and suppliers,


As many of you are probably aware, Tomoana Warehousing Ltd and Booth's Transport Ltd have been in conversations in recent months around the possibility for some form of alignment. We are pleased to announce that effective as at 31st October, 2019 Booth's Transport Ltd has purchased Tomoana Warehousing Ltd.

Moving forward it will be business as usual for Tomoana and Booth's, as both will continue to operate as separate entities with the same staff and management structure, however under the ownership and governance of the Booth's Transport Executive team. Stewart Taylor will remain at the helm of Tomoana in a newly appointed Executive Director role, as well as fulfilling the role as interim General Manager.

As we are all aware, the Transport and Logistics industry is a very dynamic and ever-changing market, which brings with it a huge number of challenges and exciting opportunities. Tomoana and Booth's are both family run companies that share a huge amount of synergy with regards to core values. Both pride themselves on their service, safety and compliance obligations to staff and customers. Under this new ownership model, we believe all stakeholders will benefit hugely from shared resources, systems and processes, through access to a broader network geographically and a wider range of service offerings. In addition to this we see other exciting opportunities too with increased capability in key areas like resource sharing, sales, health and safety, training and IT to name a few.

Lastly, we are confident and excited about the alignment of these two highly regarded businesses and believe it provides a fantastic platform for growth and opportunities for all our staff, customers and suppliers. Once again thank you for your loyal support and we look forward to working with you all to roll out this next chapter.

We take a very hands on approach with our service and are passionate about our industry. Likewise, we have a team of professionals who share our philosophy of "going that extra mile".

We run a fleet of top-of-the-line curtain-side truck and trailer units that set us apart from the competition. Our best-practice systems, including preventative maintenance, and JEAPS, our Job Entry and Processing System, help ensure that our fleet delivers.


We pride ourselves on consistently providing on-time, complete and safe delivery of goods. In this, our track record speaks for itself. The longstanding relationships we have with many of our clients have been built out of out ability to provide the best value freight services.
