Alas­tair Robert­son

Big Rigs - - TASSIE TRUCKIN’ -

IT WAS great to catch up with Alas­tair Robert­son from West Ho­bart the other day when we found him un­load­ing in Glenorchy.

He was driv­ing an eye-catch­ing SRT Lo­gis­tics 2017 P360 Sca­nia rigid fridge pan at the time, and was spend­ing the day do­ing lo­cal de­liv­er­ies in the Ho­bart Met­ro­pol­i­tan area.

“It’s a great job so far,” he told us, “great out­fit to work for and heaps of va­ri­ety, and I do drops down the east coast as well and around the south as far as Huonville and Franklin with all the great scenery!”

“I’ve been here for three months hav­ing just moved down from Brisbane, I guess you could call me a Cli­mate Refugee and I’m just en­joy­ing the weather and look­ing for­ward to the win­ter!

“I am re­ally lov­ing the moun­tains and the Na­tional Parks, the bush, the lakes and rivers, the wildlife, the whole lot.

“Lov­ing the Sca­nia too, great rig for the job!

“I’ve been on the road now for two-and-a-half years and as a job it is all I had hoped for, it sat­is­fies so many as­pects I en­joy.

“I’d have to say SRT ap­pear to be a very pro­fes­sional well run out­fit so I guess it’s all good and I’m happy all round!”

Time off, he told us all in­volved the out­doors, from Moun­tain Bike rid­ing to bush

walk­ing, but mostly see­ing all that Tas­ma­nia has to of­fer.
