About Icon Logistics

As a logistics company, Icon Logistics’ primary service is in handling and transporting containers. Following the completion of a comprehensive expansion strategy in recent years we are now significantly involved in the provision of secure storage and managed warehousing facilities. General cartage, especially of dry and palletised goods, is the third main branch of our service regime.

Our History

In 2002, two existing container handling companies merged to form a new company; formed with the aim of providing high standards of service to customers requiring road transportation of containers around Otago.

In February 2005, the new company was rebranded under the name of Icon Logistics. From our Dunedin base, Icon Logistics’ initial operations provided mainly import and export container transportation to customers in and around the Dunedin CBD and in rural areas in North and South Otago. 

In July 2011 a joint venture was undertaken between Icon Logistics and Southfreight Transport and Storage a subsidiary company of Port Otago, now trading as Icon Logistics Ltd. This joint venture has been very successful and has grown over the past four years of trading under the one identity, now employing 35 staff.

Business success since those early days has enabled the addition of secure storage and managed warehousing, as well as general cartage, to our main service functions. Storage capacity has also increased over time to extend across three sites; in Timaru Street, Sawyer’s Bay, and at ENZA. In keeping with these expansions to our business, Icon Logistics now operates anywhere in the Otago region and beyond in line with customer demand.
