Elders Wool


For the future of Australian wool.

It is with clients in mind that we have established a world-first automated wool handling business, Elders Wool.

Elders Wool builds on our existing wool offering to bring clients a full end-to-end service, providing a quick and easy delivery experience from your farm gate. The new business aims to improve efficiency and outcomes, to get wool to market faster and provide exceptional service.

Creates a link between grower and buyer

The operation is based around two centralised hubs, in Perth and Melbourne that are supported by an extensive network of receival centres.

The two centres are well-placed to support professional wool marketing. The Melbourne facility is strategically placed one turn off the Western Freeway at Ravenhall, creating a link between key regional growing areas and Australia’s largest concentration of buyers. The Perth facility is located in East Rockingham, on the doorstep to the port of Fremantle, enabling a quick and seamless transport route for buyers to deliver their wool for export to domestic and overseas destinations.

Elders Wool aims to mitigate scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions through the use of solar power, renewable energy, LED lighting and energy efficient equipment. 

The Melbourne centre moves bales using Autonomous Guided Vehicles (AGVs), a world-first for the wool industry. AGVs are low-energy self-driving vehicles which use significantly less energy than human-driven forklifts. The AGVs also aim to reduce safety risks to people, and are intended to be powered by on-roof solar.
