Toll NZ replaces Tranz Rail

Toll NZ replaces Tranz Rail

From today Tranz Rail Holdings will be known as Toll NZ and name changes will also occur to two restructured key business divisions. The rail operation will be branded Toll Rail and the freight forwarding business will be known as Toll Tranz Link

The name change signals the start of a major rebranding exercise by Toll NZ and at midday today in Auckland the company will unveil its new livery for both Toll Rail freight locomotives and Toll Tranz Link trucks.

Toll NZ Chief Executive Officer David Jackson says he is pleased to now have his senior team in place and Group General Managers appointed for key business divisions.

Greg Miller will head Toll Tranz Link while Gary Taylor from Virgin Blue in Sydney takes up his position on May 24, and will head Toll Rail.

Toll Rail will now concentrate on the line haul operation and bulk freight while Toll Tranz Link will concentrate on the retail end of the market.

Mr Jackson says these changes better position the company to service its customer base and focus the business on growing passenger, transport and logistic services across the country. "Today's launch also marks a new company structure in which people will be more accountable throughout the organisation, with improved customer liaison.

"We aim to be much easier to deal with and will have more proactive account management.

"Toll NZ is committed to improving our service offering and to continue to grow the business.

"We will invest substantially over the next few years and are here for the long term," says Mr Jackson.
