Harris Refrigerated

Harris Refrigerated specialises in the delivery of temperature sensitive products within the food and produce industries.

Harris Refrigerated (a part of Rand) are an Adelaide based interstate refrigerated transport company that was established in 1976. Prior to Rand’s purchase, they were a privately owned South Australian company.
 
Harris have approximately 300 employees located at branches in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth.
 
Harris’ niche market is fresh produce (fruit and vegetables) but they also get involved in frozen and chilled product similar to Rand.
 
Harris has a large fleet of quality road equipment consisting of more than 80 prime movers and 150 refrigerated trailers. They also operate rigid vehicles and rail containers.
 
Harris operates a national refrigerated freight service out of Adelaide, connecting with Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, with services departing daily on most of these routes.
 
The acquisition of Harris Refrigerated enhances Rand by offering increased service capabilities for existing customers and a complementary geographic footprint and customer base. Harris’ expertise in road transport will complement Rand’s existing road and rail capacity and allow Rand to transport fresh produce in addition to frozen and chilled product.
 
Bringing the two companies together is a vitally important step in securing our future and allowing us to grow our business. The acquisition will provide Rand with many important benefits including:
 
  • The flexibility of a road and rail network across the country.
  • The opportunity to enter the produce market along the east/west corridor.
  • An improved competitive position in Adelaide.
  • Complementary corridor infrastructure.
Rand’s operations will continue as normal with the aim of maintaining and strengthening our relationships with key customers. The Harris acquisition will bring a huge injection of quality road equipment. 
 
Harris will continue to trade under the name of Harris Refrigerated.
 
The acquisition builds on RAND’s position as Australia’s leading refrigerated transport company and provides customers of both Harris and RAND with an increased service offering.
