Alex French


CALL­ING in at the Cal­tex at Ep­ping For­est re­cently for a cuppa and a bite to eat, we were happy to catch up with Alex French, from Devon­port, when he rolled in driv­ing a SeaRoad 2005 FH-16 Volvo and tow­ing a drop deck tri-axle fridge pan.

He was on his re­turn leg from Hobart back to Devon­port and then to knock off for the week­end at the time, and he told us: “Well I’ve been here for 18 months now, and am lov­ing it!

“Apart from be­ing a good job, they are a great crowd to work with and it’s reg­u­lar work and busy enough to keep us happy.

“I’ve been on the road driv­ing now for four years and have no re­grets, it’s the job I al­ways wanted.

“I pre­vi­ously looked for jobs work­ing as a yardie, any­thing that kept me around and with trucks!”

In his time off, he tells us, he likes to go camp­ing and be­ing out­doors with the boys.
