Our History
Tracing our founding origins to the establishment of Dalgety Wool Store in Moorabool Street, in Geelong over 170 years ago, AWH was formally renamed and registered as Australian Wool Handlers in 1998.

The newly formed entity was created as a joint venture of the wool handling operations of Elders and Landmark (Dalgety Wool) to provide economies and a national footprint in warehousing and export wool services for Australia’s two largest agri-businesses and the Australian wool industry.

By growing in both wool and diversifying its core business offering, the company expanded to become a major cotton player in 2006. AWH further increased its service offering with the commitment to becoming a national and international logistics and freight forwarding provider in 2007.

 In 2014 Elder’s sold their 50% stake to stevedoring and global logistics company DP World Australia. DP World Australia and Landmark are now the 50% co-owners.

 AWH is now the world’s largest wool and independent cotton handler as well as being one of Australia’s leading general warehouse and specialist logistics providers, with a comprehensive capability in storage, handling, inventory management and domestic/international transport and freight forwarding services for import, export and domestic distribution.
