Merry Christmas to you all

Holidays and Operating Hours

North Pole Diesel Services are almost finished the annual service on Santa's b-double sled and the elves will soon be loading and checking that all is properly restrained.

To help with your transport planning we would like to confirm our operating arrangements over the festive period.

Cochrane's will be closed for the Public Holidays on the 25th and 28th of December and the 1st of January. Paper/Bread deliveries will continue as normal with the exception of Christmas Day.

Please note the following changes to our Adelaide pickup service for 24th, 29th, 30th and 31st December:

  • All pickups need to be called in by 12pm. Bookings made after this time may not be picked up until the following day
  • All customers who have a permanent daily pickup will also need to call before 12pm on those days. No pickups will be made unless a phone booking is received

We also kindly request that customers notify us of any changes to business opening/closing times during this period to avoid disruptions to service and unecessary delivery attempts. For our Regional Customers, normal services will occur in most towns with the exception of Public Holidays and Saturdays. Please contact your local agent or our office in Adelaide on 1300 COCHRANES.

On behalf of all at Cochrane's, I wish you a safe and enjoyable holiday season. We are grateful for your support and sincerely hope that we all enjoy a prosperous 2016.

Bruce Hampson - CEO

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.
