Seeley International has finalised a major three-year contract deal with Adelaide-based freight company, Kangaroo Transport Industries (KTI) for the haulage of its award-winning air conditioning and heating products across Australia.

Seeley International founder and Executive Chairman, Mr Frank Seeley AM observed that his company’s alignment with a like-minded family-operated business will help secure jobs, and strengthen the economy.

Pointing out the similarities between the two companies, Mr Seeley said that both Seeley International and KTI are family owned and operated businesses that have withstood the test of time, and are now acknowledged for service excellence and market leadership.

According to Mr Seeley, the logistics contract is a good example of how two successful businesses can work together to achieve a win-win outcome, and hopefully serve as inspiration for others to do what they can, to also support and secure Australian jobs.

He adds that Seeley International takes great pride in aligning with only the best, and KTI offers a bespoke logistics service at a competitive price, along with the assurance of reliability when it comes to distribution and delivery of their products.

KTI CEO Mr Stephen Buck said that they will be fulfilling a major part of Seeley International’s national logistics function for finished goods from its logistics centres in Adelaide, Albury, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.

He added that the announcement represented the culmination of many years of developing, refining and strengthening their national transport capabilities to enable them to service their clients’ total logistics needs, including line haul services across Australia, rail services to WA, warehousing and distribution, and external storage.

The contract, which is worth more than $20m has commenced on 1 November 2014.
