Me­ga­trucks bear heavy load

Jon Kelly’s giants are on the move while the rest of us sleep, writes

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - MONDAY EXTRA -

Start­ing with only him­self and one truck, Kelly has grown his busi­ness to where he now em­ploys 90 peo­ple at his Wa­col base. His driv­ers are sub­ject to up to five ran­dom and in­de­pen­dently con­ducted drug tests each year.

If there’s one thing he can’t stand though, it’s cowboys on the road – he says his em­ploy­ees are aware of his work ethic and stan­dards.

‘‘We em­ploy about 90 peo­ple and those will ran­domly be tested up to three times per an­num,’’ Kelly says.

‘‘We have a low turnover of staff and . . . ev­ery­body knows what I am like.

‘‘If there was a stuff-up or some­thing went bad I would hunt you down and find you.’’
