Mort & Co has joined with a number of key business partners and acknowledges the value and contribution of these business relationships to Mort & Co's success.
In 2003, Mort & Co partnered with Mr Peter Gilbert and obtained a 50% ownership in the freight company, Gilberts Transport (Qld) Pty Ltd ('Gilberts Transport') to meet its cattle transport requirements.
In March 2014 Mort & Co expanded the operation by combining Gilberts Transport with another transport business, Farmhaul. Mort & Co has retained a 50% ownership in the now expanded Farmhaul operation which operates between 20 and 25 prime movers for the transport of cattle, feed supplements and commodities.
