Our focus has stayed consistent over the years, to supply a quality transport service to the rural sector.
We work out of 10 depots, Auroa, Normanby, Hawera, Waitara, Piopio, Waverley, Whanganui, Bulls, Featherston & Napier and operate a fleet of 96 trucks and employing 130 staff.
In 1923 Mr E.F. Sandford bought a Chevrolet truck and commenced carrying general goods but predominantly metal, based on a farm on Skeet Road, Auroa (now owned by Mr R. Poole). In 1927 the railway line from Te Roti to Opunake was opened and the decision was made to build a depot at Auroa as a central point for goods in and out of the coastal area.
