Legend Logistics Australia opens Perth depot ahead of national expansion

09 December 2022

Legend Logistics Australia has taken a major step forward in its national expansion plans with the opening of its first depot in Welshpool, Perth. The new site marks the first official presence of Legend Logistics outside Melbourne, where its head office is based.

According to Managing Director Troy Eiken, "Western Australia has been identified as a crucial growth segment, which has prompted further investments in equipment and personnel."

Five prime movers have been recently acquired for the location, including four Western Star 4800s which are currently in operation, and an additional Western Star 4900 en route. At present, the new depot is servicing some minor contracts as it consolidates the linehaul business before venturing into the Pilbara where there is an ongoing demand for commercial vehicle fleets in the mining and gas segments.

"We’re looking to grow that in the near future with larger contracts in the next year," said Troy Eiken.

With the Perth office up and running, the next phase of the plan is for Legend Logistics Australia to establish a depot in Adelaide early next year ahead of a likely expansion into Brisbane by Q4.
