Lightbody Transport is proud to be an Australian owned and operated company which has been successfully operating in the transport industry for over 40 years.
Started in 1968 by Ed and Heather Lightbody the company now employs over 20 people including son Darren and Tony. The recent retirement of Ed and Heather now sees Darren and Tony as the company’s directors after working their way up from drivers over the past 20 years.
Lightbody Transport specialises in the transportation of light cubic freight and have carried for some of Australia’s largest manufacturers of plastic and foam products for the past 30 years. Recently we have expanded our fleet with crane trucks to make our service more versitile, and to meet our customers needs.
With rapid growth since 2000, we have expanded our services into storage and warehouse distribution on several occasions to meet our customers’ requirements. One of our major projects consisted of us storing over 15,000 pallets of stock with a daily rotation of approximately 1000 pallets per day sent out from four separate facilities under our full control.
Further expansion and need for our expertise has lead us into the transportation of a wider range of freight such as steel roofing products, insulation and recycling materials.
Being a family owned and operated we take great pride in our close working partnerships with our customers and employees. We believe this has been a key factor towards our success in the industry for over 40 years.
That’s why service and attention to details is something we never sacrifice!
