  • New Woolworths Contract Barnawartha

    Monday, 20 August 2018

     

    RFT has recently been awarded a new contract for work related to the Barnawartha DC for Woolworths Secondary Freight. This work, which will service stores within the Riverina area and in Albury and Wodonga, is in addition to the current work that RFT undertakes at Barnawartha.  As a result of this new contract RFT will begin advertising for new roles within operations and for drivers. We will also be investing in additional prime movers, refrigerated vans and other trailer equipment.  This equipment will be progressively delivered into the fleet.

    The new contract start date is yet to be finalised but is expected to be sometime late October or early November.

    The success in winning this contract follows on from previous successes in securing additional and contracted work with Baiada and Hyne Timber. Our long term reputation based on being a safe and reliable transport provider has helped us win this new contract. Customers are increasingly seeking to partner with transport companies that can they can rely upon to deliver legally, safely and compliantly. The pending changes to the Chain of Responsibility (CoR) regulations will continue to support this approach.

    My thanks to all those RFT employees who help manage, operate and maintain the Barnawartha based fleet. Your efforts in ensuring that we reliably and safely deliver to the DC and their customers each and every day has helped us to secure this additional work.

    Having won the work we now need to ensure that we have equipment and the additional team members in place to start on time and continue to build on our strong brand and reputation with the Woolworths team.

About Ron Finemore Transport

Ron Finemore Transport was established by Ron Finemore AO in 2004, following his acquisition of Wodonga-based company Lewington's Transport. In 2005, Smith's Transport in Orange was also purchased, forming the foundation of the company today.

The conception of Ron Finemore Transport signalled Ron Finemore's re-emergence into the transport industry, following the sale of Finemore Holdings in 2001; the company he built from the ground up during the 1960s.

With our head office located in Wodonga on the New South Wales/Victoria border, directly in the centre of the Sydney-Melbourne-Adelaide freight triangle, RFT provides regional and inter-capital city line-haul road transport services across four major operating divisions; general freight, liquid freight, temperature-controlled, and bulk freight.

Our Wodonga office is the resource base for all of RFT's regional distribution, interstate freight services and capital city logistics, and provides fleet maintenance services, while also acting as the national centre for sales and administration.
