Sandhills Pacific Acquires Australia’s TruckWorld.com.au

Brisbane, Australia — July 20, 2017



Sandhills Pacific has acquired TruckWorld.com.au, one of Australia’s leading resources for buying and selling new and used commercial trucks and trailers. The acquisition combines TruckWorld.com.au and Truck Paper—two of the region’s leading brands—to better serve both buyers and sellers in the local Australian market and beyond.

TruckWorld.com.au lists thousands of new and used light, medium, and heavy duty trucks for sale from dealers and private sellers across Australia. Listed assets also include specialty trucks and trailers, as well as parts and accessories. The site’s steady growth over time has made it a comprehensive resource for buyers and sellers of these assets.

“TruckWorld.com.au has built a strong presence in the local Australian market, and furthers our ability to connect buyers and sellers on a local and global scale,” explains Sandhills’ Chief Operations Officer Shawn Peed. “This acquisition combines the strength of two market leaders to better serve both buyers and sellers.”

“We think this is great for TruckWorld.com.au and its loyal customers because we will be able to expand our offering via a free publication specifically targeting truck buyers. Ongoing, TruckWorld.com.au will be able to leverage Sandhills’ infrastructure and support, offering new features and tools for our dealer network and value add products. Most importantly, it is business as usual for our customers,” explains TruckWorld.com.au’s Managing Director Andreas Sideratos.

With the acquisition, the TruckWorld.com.au brand will join the publications provided by Sandhills Pacific, Sandhills East, and Sandhills Publishing, the global distribution of which exceeds five million copies each month. The TruckWorld.com.au website’s exposure will be supplemented by the distribution of a corresponding print publication—TruckWorld.com.au Powered by Truck Paper, which will be available for free across the country at key distribution points buyers frequent. With the backing of Sandhills’ established Truck Paper brand, which already holds strong distribution networks across Australia, the print publication stands to further advertisers’ reach in the region and beyond.
