Centurion Transport acquires Queensland transport company

Centurion delivers goods to flooded Kimberley region.

Centurion Transport has acquired Rocky’s Own Transport through an asset sale, effective 1 July 2023.

Previous directors and all staff will remain with the business, as part of the Centurion Network.

“While we integrate into our systems and processes with Centurion, it is business as usual for our staff and the services we deliver to our customers,” a Rocky’s Own Transport spokesperson said.

“Our primary goal is to ensure a seamless transition with Centurion and you can expect the same level of professionalism, quality and dedication that you have come to associate with our business.

“If you have any questions or concerns regarding the acquisition, please do not hesitate to reach out to your regular contact or Rocky’s Own head office.”

Rocky’s Own Transport was established in 1985.

It specialises in transporting explosives and dangerous goods for mining and resource clients.

As a national logistics company it has grown its network of depots across Queensland, NSW and Western Australia.

Centurion CEO Justin Cardaci said the acquisition was part of Centurion’s broader strategy to expand the company’s operational footprint and expand its services to the mining and agriculture sectors, alongside its other refrigerated, fresh produce and general freight services throughout Australia.

“We have been carefully building our national presence and this acquisition reflects the strength of Rocky’s Own Transport and its market share in the key sectors in which it operates,” he said.

“Centurion has a solid presence in the mining and energy sectors, and this acquisition is a natural fit for us and an extension of our capabilities.”

The transaction means Centurion now employs more than 2000 people across Australia.

“Bryan Smith and Rodney Carige and their team have built an incredibly robust business transporting dangerous goods  via depots in Rockhampton, Wacol, Helidon, Yarwun and Kalgoorlie through an established and successful network,” said Cardaci.

“We welcome the 300-plus Rocky’s Own employees into our business.”
