The Carter Heavy Haulage Story

Established in 2013, Carter Heavy Haulage & Transport is proud to be one of the leading providers of heavy haulage and logistics services in the Hunter region. Inspired when on holiday in Noosa, Leonnie and Josh Carter made the decision to combine their business and transport knowledge to bring Carter Heavy Haulage to life.

In 2013, the company started out with one other driver, who shared the truck with Josh to handle the first round of deliveries. Since then Carter Heavy Haulage has grown, both in staff numbers and fleet. Carter Heavy Haulage now has 26 pieces of industry-leading transport equipment, which includes six trucks, a tilt tray and a range of trailers built for a range of transportation needs.

The Carter Heavy Haulage staff are key to the success of the business. With our dedicated team working around the clock to provide for clients, we remain focused on teamwork, safety, and quality assurance.

We are all about going the extra mile, our Chain of Responsibility commitment provides a solid foundation for our operations. Our award-winning safety management systems are regularly reviewed by our Compliance Manager to ensure that we are able to meet client needs whilst ensuring everyone goes home safely.
