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 the re-emergence of Ron Finemore back into the transport industry following the sale of Finemore Holdings in 2001; the company which 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 two major operating divisions – Food, Produce (either ambient or temperature controlled) & Manufactured Goods and Bulk Liquids.
Our Wodonga office is the resource base for all of Ron Finemore Transport’s regional distribution, interstate freight services, capital city logistics and provides fleet maintenance services whilst also acting as the national centre for sales and administration.
Our custom-design operations base located in Orange, in the heart of Central-Western New South Wales, provides vehicle maintenance and warehousing services, while our regional hubs in Wagga Wagga, New South Wales and Eagle Farm Queensland support our logistical network allowing us to continue providing a consistent and reliable standard of customer service.
With a fleet size of more than 280 prime movers and upwards of 550 pieces of trailing equipment travelling over 70 million kilometres annually, we maintain a strong safety culture supported by industry best practice compliance accreditations.
More than 900 people are employed by Ron Finemore Transport, including drivers, internal maintenance workshop crews and operational and administration staff. Many of the current senior managers, drivers and support staff originally worked for Finemore Holdings; demonstrating the high level of employee satisfaction and care that exists within the company.
