This impressive book charts the story of the Toll Group, beginning with Albert Toll who gave up who gave up coal mining to start a horse and cart hauling business in Newcastle, NSW in 1888. After Albert’s death, the family sold the business to one of its customers, National Minerals, who in turn, sold out to Peko Wallsend in 1962. It was under this ownership that the business became a national carrier. Following further merges and changes of ownership, Toll was listed on the Australian stock exchange in 1993. Going from strength to strength, Toll Group broadened its horizons to become a powerful transportation and logistics company with operations in road, rail, sea, air and warehousing across Australia, New Zealand and Asia. Very easy to read, well formatted, full of coloured photos and printed on glossy paper.
