GMK Integration On Track


Today marks our first 85 days in control of GMK.

It has been a busy time for the CTI and GMK integration team settling the business into the CTI Group.

GMK was established in 1962 (53 years old) as a general carrier providing services between Sydney and Camden (NSW).

Today GMK is a national company providing transport and logistical services to the residential and commercial floor covering sectors.

Head office is in Sydney, with depots in Brisbane, Newcastle (NSW), Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.

GMK operates an express and general line haul service to and from all capital cities including Canberra.

GMK also provides 3PL warehousing services to clients.

This includes having carpet and vinyl cutting machines at several of our facilities to cut carpet and vinyl to measure for direct delivery to our clients’ customers.

We recently held a two day GMK state managers’ meeting in Perth to plan for the next stage of GMK’s growth and to give the GMK team the opportunity to have a look at a number of the CTI businesses and meet our management team.

It was a worthwhile event with all managers going home with a better appreciation of CTI’s operating systems and the services we provide.


GMK acquired by CTI Logistics

GMK Logistics is proud to announce the company has been acquired by Perth based CTI Logistics Ltd.

CTI Logistics is a listed company that has provided transport, logistics and business services to the Western Australia market since 1974.

CTI was attracted to the transport and warehousing strengths of GMK Logistics and its reputation for great customer service.

Following extensive due diligence, the transaction was completed and announced to the Stock Exchange on 10 June 2015.

Being part of CTI Logistics will provide even greater financial stability to GMK Logistics and will give it access to a range of support services and expertise within the CTI Group.

GMK’s CEO, Derek Lightfoot, has confirmed that it will most definitely be “business as usual” at GMK.

“Whilst we are now a subsidiary of CTI Logistics, I like to think of it as a merger of two outstanding and complementary businesses. Both companies have been in business for decades, have strong family company backgrounds and a total commitment to customer service. This transaction is good for GMK Logistics, its employees and, most importantly, its customers.”
