Overnight freight to Brissie

Isis Town and Country - - Life -

BARRY Wood will break new ground when he takes to the road later to­mor­row.

Mr Wood, from Childers Trans­port, will be on the first run of his new freight line, which he said would be the first ser­vice to trans­port goods be­tween Childers and Bris­bane overnight.

He said he in­tended to ser­vice Gin Gin as well, which would open fur­ther business op­por­tu­ni­ties.

“I’ve been plan­ning for this for months,” he said.

“You just have to ask peo­ple what they want and I’ve spent a lot of time ask­ing peo­ple just that.”

Mr Wood said he was in­spired to start the ser­vice him­self after he couldn’t find a business that would move freight to Childers.

“They all take it to Bund­aberg then bring it back down,” Mr Wood said.

“I will de­liver to the door overnight. Tyres, en­gines – I’ll take any­thing I can fit on the truck.”
