Managing Director & Co-Founder

Carter Heavy Haulage wouldn’t be the business it is today without our Managing Director, Josh Carter. 

Before establishing the business in 2013, Josh was employed as a heavy diesel mechanic with his local Kenworth dealership, a position he picked up straight out of high-school.

After completing his trade with Kenworth, Josh’s passion for trucking and machinery led him to begin working alongside his grandfather Ken in the family transport business.

Soon after Ken retired, Josh and his wife Leonnie decided to continue in his family’s footsteps – launching Carter Heavy Haulage in January 2013. With years of dedication to heavy haulage in the Hunter, Josh was able to purchase his pride and joy, the Kenworth Legend 900 #189.

Day-to-day you will find Josh either behind the wheel of his beloved truck, or working hard to manage client enquiries/quotes in the Carter Heavy Haulage office.

It goes without saying Josh is exceptionally dedicated to the transport industry, and this was recognised in 2018 and again in 2019 when he received the Road Freight NSW Professional Driver of the Year Award.
