How important is the farming community to your business:

Who are your biggest clients:
Fonterra’s our largest transport account in Australasia. Forget the number of trucks they have… it’s about what they do.
Do you have any plans in the future to expand your business:
Two years ago we went into the South Island. We see a lot of opportunity in the South Island. We’ve now got seven branches across the South Island and 34 branches in total across New Zealand.
