The sale comes after a deal was signed between auctioneer Ritchie Bros, global advisory, restructuring, and investment firm Gordon Brothers and "one of Australia’s largest national freight companies" to "disperse" the assets including 26 prime movers and 91 trailers and dollies.

While a spokesperson for parties involved would not disclose the circumstances of the sale, telling ATN the specific details are commercially sensitive, images of the listings display Toll livery.
