TruckSafe welcomes two new members this week Warrego Livestock Transport and Macheda Transport. I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate both businesses on achieving TruckSafe accreditation and to warmly welcome them into the TruckSafe community.
Warrego Livestock Transport based in Brassall Queensland is a family owned business that has been operating since 1996.
The business owners son Drew Witt and business partner Peter Taylor have worked in cattle transport for many years together and between the two of them have over 65 years experience. Drew and Peter offer cattle transport as well as the maintenance of trucks and trailers.
Warrego have become accredited to ensure safe work practices for their employees and that their fleet and equipment is mechanically well maintained to offer their customers the highest safety standards.
“Trucksafe accreditation will show that we are compliant with and exceed the requirements of the Land Transport of Livestock Standards for the safe transport of cattle as well as the safe working practices in the Industry Master Code of Practice. We are proud to have gained Trucksafe accreditation”. Drew Witt.
Macheda Transport is a family business that began as a one truck business in 1971.
The Macheda family went on to build the fleet and transported fresh produce to Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne from the local area. Frank & Debbie took over the operations of Macheda Transport in 2010. The business remains family based with their children stepping up into various roles within the business. Macheda Transport’s full-time drivers have over 50 years combined service with the company.
Macheda Transport has shifted focus over the years to service local industries, specialising in daily returns between Melbourne and Cobram, Northern Victoria and Southern NSW. Their operation includes their head office, main depot and warehouse facility based in Cobram, as well as a secondary depot in Melbourne.
Business owner Frank has a very hands-on approach to the day to day logistics and says
“Our TruckSafe accreditation will further demonstrate our commitment to safety, to our customers and the community. TruckSafe will ensure our employees are safe and healthy and that our business practices are professional, safeguarding the viability of our operation into the future”.
