SCL is proudly 100% Australian-owned, providing integrated, port-to-door, landside logistics services to some of the world’s biggest names. With a rapidly growing turnover, a large and satisfied workforce, an established safety record and tier one technology to support our operations, we are proud to say that SCL stands tall in the Australian logistics community.

We are a business that believes our success is based on the success of both our clients and our staff, and we are completely committed to achieving this for all stakeholders. We take great pride in our ability to understand our clients’ requirements and collaboratively build a solution that is innovative and exceeds expectation.

SCL has been built on the strong foundation and reputation of two dynamic Australian logistics companies that now work together as one team. In 2012, Kagan Logistics and Hoffmann Transport aligned to form Silk Contract Logistics. With individual company histories dating back more than 50 years, SCL is one of the most experienced warehousing and transport operations in the country. In February 2014, the management team acquired SCL from Gresham Private Equity
