The Commerce Commission has received an application from Port of Tauranga Limited and Toll Limited seeking clearance of a proposed acquisition by a yet to be formed joint venture company to acquire The Owens Cargo Company Limited, Toll Logistics (NZ) Limited and Leonard and Dingley Limited.

Toll is owned by Toll Group (NZ) Limited, which is wholly-owned by Toll Holdings Limited (Australia). In NZ, Toll has an integrated national network of rail, road and sea freight transportation, distribution and logistics management services, and interisland and urban passenger services.

Toll Logistics is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Toll. Its services include stevedoring and marshalling services in the ports of Whangarei, Auckland, Tauranga, New Plymouth, Gisborne, Napier, Wellington and Lyttleton.
