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.
