Inductee: Terry Tzaneros, founder and chairman, ACFS

Terry Tzaneros has been an important part of waterfront and container logistics for a very long time. He started in the industry working in a four-truck operation in the Sydney suburb of Lakemba.

From then on he was a presence in the industry, managing container logistics from Sydney’s ports, including Port Botany and Darling Harbour.

He is now the founder and chairman of Australia’s largest privately owned container logistics operator, ACFS. The company employs more than 1200 people across the country in its road, rail, warehousing and empty container park operations. ACFS moves more than 1.2 million TEU every year.

Terry founded ACFS in 2005 after P&O approached him, asking if he was interested in purchasing the landside business it ran at Port Botany.

After expanding into Fremantle in 2015, ACFS now has locations close to all major ports in Australia and it is expanding with new sites in Melbourne and Sydney.

Terry has been an important driving force behind the company’s expansion over the years, and through his company’s commitment to providing container freight logistics services of the highest calibre.
