Greenfreight was founded in 1973 by Fred Green and commenced operations in the Myrtleford area of Victoria. Since then, the company has expanded its service capabilities, specialising in the transportation of general freight, bulk flour, softwood, Fast Moving Consumable Goods (FMCG). It also provides ‘value-added’ services such as warehousing as well as local freight deliveries.
For almost three decades Greenfreight has invested in reliable, high quality trailing equipment from Vawdrey.
Tony Green, Greenfreight Managing Director, has been in his current position for 30 years, seeing the relationship with the trailer manufacturer the whole way through.
“We are a family owned regionally based transport business that provides transport solutions to the softwood logging industry and specialised linehaul solutions to the industrial, food and beverage sectors,”
“We have a focus on delivering service-based solutions that are flexible, innovative and cost-effective. Vawdrey trailers are of high quality and maintain strong resale value.”
Vawdrey values this close relationship and is committed to delivering high productivity Performance-Based Standards (PBS) solutions.
Greenfreight recently acquired multiple sets of 36-pallet, straight deck B-double Titeliners from Vawdrey to further service its customers. The trailers are made from Strenx high tensile lightweight steel and feature Hendrickson Intraax suspension, the HXL-7 wheel-end package, light-weight aluminium floors and wheels as well as load-rated curtains.
The trailers will be operating in Greenfreight’s high cube division. With a height of 4.6 metres, this trailer configuration can operate at Higher Mass Limits (HML) weights – 68.5 tonnes Gross Combination Mass (GCM), and has maximised side apertures of 3,100mm.
Tony says he’s found great pleasure in dealing with Vawdrey over the years, as they have helped his business in many ways.
“The Vawdrey business is a great business to deal with and maintain a preferred supplier position with Greenfreight,” he says. “We believe Vawdrey has a strong reputation in the industry for relationship and customer service and for building innovative trailers that are of a high quality.”
