Linfox, as reported in the Australian Financial Review, has been involved in concurrent talks with eStore Logistics to become a majority shareholder.
eStore Logistics was founded in 2008 by director and majority shareholder Leigh Williams, and is part owned by Ruslan Kogan whose group Kogan Management Pty Ltd maintains a 19 per cent stake.
At present eStore Logistics fulfils over 40,000 orders a day having expanded into Sydney last year where it operates a newly built distribution centre.
Patagonia, Temple & Webster and Kogan.com are among its major clients.
Recently Linfox purchased Aurizon intermodal after taking full control of drinks distribution business BevChain in 2017.
