AAL’s Vision becoming a reality

Two years ago AAL gave a commitment to break into the larger truck market and offer a superior level of service to regional Australia. Today, our value added service is starting to pay off. 

To meet an increased demand for 4t to 20t capacity trucks in regional areas the company has opened service branches in Tasmania, Gilmore, and Mt Gambier. 

We are also pleased to announce the signing of two of Australia’s biggest forestry companies, Auspine Limited and Weyerhaeuser and the re-signing of ITC Limited. 

AAL’s forklift fleet management agreement with Auspine Limited, Australia’s largest non-government pine plantation grower, is acknowledgement of AAL’s commitment to regional Australia. As an independent supplier AAL were able to source the correct equipment for each application, and the flexibility to offer a mix of trucks that includes Mitsubishi, Hyster, Kalmar and Toyota. 

Weyerhaeuser, Australia’s largest producer of softwood timber, will also utilise AAL’s sourcing strength by operating approximately 45 large pieces of equipment in plantations and sawmills at Mt Gambier in South Australia, Dartmoor on the edge of the Glenelg River in South Western Victoria, Gilmore in the Tumut region of New South, and in Caboolture, north of Brisbane, Queensland. 

This commitment to the large truck market has also seen our partnership with Australia’s biggest hardwood plantation forestry managers, ITC Limited, extended. 

AAL will continue providing material handling solutions for the company’s Victorian plants located in Alexandra and Heyfield, as well as Tasmania. 

AAL’s Victorian State manager Brad Rooney believes that ‘The big truck landscape is constantly changing, so it is important that we supply customers with a range of trucks that best suit their needs now and in the future.’ ITC Limited will continue to use Mitsubishi, Komatsu and Kalmar trucks, in their yards and mills.
