Economic growth, people’s lifestyle choices and demand for road transport and logistics services are inextricably linked.

Virtually every product grown, made or used in New Zealand will be carried by truck at least once during its lifetime.

Many operators within the sector are continuing to struggle with financial and operational issues and are looking for ways to improve operational efficiencies, economies of scale, pricing models and wealth creation.

Grant Thornton New Zealand can support transport organisations at every stage of a company’s life cycle and offers a wide range of services including:

  • accounting and advisory services
  • succession planning
  • audit, compliance and tax advice
  • financial analysis, performance reviews and benchmarking
  • management assistance and ongoing business monitoring
  • process improvement
  • procurement
  • restructuring, insolvency and recovery
  • risk management
  • valuations, mergers and acquisitions.
