  • Woolworths Meat Co Refrigerated Contract

    Thursday, 15 March 2018

    Announcement :     Woolworths Meat Co Refrigerated Contract

    RFT has announced to its employees that the business has been successful in being awarded the Woolworths Refrigerated Meat Co Melbourne – Sydney – Melbourne looping service contract for the next 3 years.  This announcement includes the following:

    This piece of work aligns well to RFT’s continued investment in our driver and operational skill sets, market leading technology platforms, advanced temperature control safety features and our desire to increase our refrigeration footprint.

    The scope of the new refrigerated work is as follows:

    • The route covers Truganina Melbourne – SRDC Minchinbury Sydney – Truganina Melbourne looping shuttles.
    • Commencement date 16 April 2018
    • 4 x single 26 pallet refrigeration vehicles a day with an extra vehicle for Thursday service.
    • RFT moves to B Double 36 pallet refrigeration vehicles in September / October 2018 as new RFT equipment comes online.

    The area of refrigeration transport has become increasing complex as customers become more discerning about the quality of the refrigerated product they receive.

    RFT’s ability to provide live temperature GPS tracking data and set point temperature alert messaging configurations were highly valued by the Woolworths team, as is our proven ability within the NDC Melbourne – Sydney Linehaul shuttle contracts.  RFT’s continued investment in Blue Tree IT platforms enables our business to lead the market in real time location and temperature monitoring of product ranges.  

    This new contract allows the opportunity for professional refrigeration drivers to join our RFT team to safely optimise our performance in this new business opportunity.  It will also be important to continue to service the existing Woolworths contracts safely and reliably as well as deliver on the requirements of this new contract.  

    Our performance, reputation and capability to retain and win work is determined by our continued ability to provide safe and reliable service and delivery to promise.   

    Kind regards,

    Mark Parry

About Ron Finemore Transport

Ron Finemore Transport was established by Ron Finemore AO in 2004, following his acquisition of Wodonga-based company Lewington's Transport. In 2005, Smith's Transport in Orange was also purchased, forming the foundation of the company today.

The conception of Ron Finemore Transport signalled Ron Finemore's re-emergence into the transport industry, following the sale of Finemore Holdings in 2001; the company he built from the ground up during the 1960s.

With our head office located in Wodonga on the New South Wales/Victoria border, directly in the centre of the Sydney-Melbourne-Adelaide freight triangle, RFT provides regional and inter-capital city line-haul road transport services across four major operating divisions; general freight, liquid freight, temperature-controlled, and bulk freight.

Our Wodonga office is the resource base for all of RFT's regional distribution, interstate freight services and capital city logistics, and provides fleet maintenance services, while also acting as the national centre for sales and administration.
