Megatrucks bear heavy load
Jon Kelly’s giants are on the move while the rest of us sleep, writes
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.’’
