TRUST YOUR BUSINESS TO A LOCAL
A Proud Past, Strong Future, and Driven to Deliver for Our Customers...
In 1974, Peter and his wife Christine purchased a contract to deliver the Australian Women's Weekly in Adelaide. Seeing the opportunity to co-carry other magazines and newspapers, the business quickly developed into the leading print media distribution provider in South Australia.
Over time, pick/pack operations were added to our suite of services, however the business recognised the need in the market to establish a cost effective express distribution model to regional areas. The business diversified to included warehousing, express freight and inbound cross-docking services from other states as well as a significant metropolitan capability.
While we still deliver the Australian Women's Weekly and will never forget our origins, the opportunities for the future are much broader and very exciting.

We have been utilising Cochrane's (formerly Northern Kope) to service all our Autobarn/Autopro stores in South Australia over the last 4 years and I'm delighted to say they are one of our best carriers. When we first started working with Automotive Brands we really struggled to find a carrier that could meet the high demands of servicing the SA stores day to day orders. We had stores that required deliveries prior to 9am and others that had tailgate requirements on a daily basis. Cochrane's were tremendous in assisting Fortigo to understand the needs that each store had. Out of all the states that we currently service for ABG, South Australia is by far the smoothest.
Finally, if any issues ever arise then Cochrane's work very hard to resolve them. Thank you for the outstanding service provided thus far, and we look forward to many more years of strong business relationships.
