Operating since 1984, Land Transport carries a wide variety of general freight throughout Australia.
It all started when Trevor Young and Barry Land decided to “have a go” and each purchased a truck which they individually worked, forming Young and Land Transport.
In 2005 Barry recognized that many of our customers required facilities for storing surplus goods. With this in mind Land Storage and Distribution (LSD) was born.
With the purchase of Freightrite Transport in August 2007 the company was able to offer regular services to North Queensland. Land Transport and Freightrite Transport became capable of providing deliveries to most towns Australia wide.
In February 2008 after many successful years Trevor and Shirley Young decided to turn their last wheels. Barry Land decided he was not finished with the industry which has become his life’s work and can still be seen in the chair regularly running this finely tuned operation.
Land Transport’s head office is located in Toowoomba, Queensland. Land Transport has depots and agents throughout Australia. All depot staff are fully trained and conversant with all aspects of transport and willing to assist with customer’s freight requirements and storage needs.
Land Transport is Truck Safe accredited, a National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation Scheme (NHVAS) member, Western Australia Heavy vehicle accreditation scheme (WAHVAS) and AgSafe accredited. As part of these accreditations it is a requirement to ensure that all staff and equipment are at the highest of standards at all times, this is managed internally.
Being in the transport business is more than a job for Barry and Raewyn, it is a way of life – growing up, their children were as much a part of the business as their staff . Today they are proud to have their sons as part of the growing companies team. They have built a strong team of more than 270 staff and operate a fleet of over 450 units.
The Land family enjoys what they do and recognises the importance of timely and professional service to all their customers. Land Transport is committed to providing this service now and well into the future.
“To deliver excellence and exceed expectations in transport, storage and logistics management across this amazing country.”
