History of Liquid Logistics

Started in 2005 Liquid Logistics has become one of New Zealand’s leading tank container (ISO tank) operators.

Its founder, Vaughan Tebbutt had worked in the chemical, petro-chemical and oil industries for over 40 years and used this knowledge together with his corporate experience to establish a company that could provide a competitive, safe and efficient service.

Tanja Zurbruegg joined Liquid Logistics in 2011. Having many years of experience within the ISO tank industry, she has been the General Manager since 2017.

In October 2014 Liquid Logistics joined Hookers Shipping Ltd - a subsidiary of Transport Investments Ltd (TIL). TIL is one of New Zealand’s leading domestic freight and logistics companies, headquartered in New Plymouth, New Zealand.

The business began in the 1860s with the original Hooker Brothers transport company. In 1989, a new vision was created – to grow the business and expand nationwide and internationally.

A key part of that vision was opening branches across the country and acquiring similar transport businesses that fitted with the company’s operation and thinking – and provided the network and services needed. TIL joined the New Zealand Stock Exchange in December 2017.
