Jarratt Transport Solutions adds new Kenworths, drivers

Queensland-based transporter, Jarratt Transport Solutions, has accepted delivery of a second set of four Kenworth T610SAR models with O’Phee B-double road transpec configurations.

The Kenworths feature a Cummins X15 Euro V engine with 615 hp and 1850 lb-ft of torque, each rated to 97 tonnes.

The trucks will be carrying general freight along the East Coast between Cairns and Adelaide, along with cotton, wind and solar farms freight and power and infrastructure goods.

In addition to the new vehicles, Jarratt is also welcoming four new truck drivers to the Brisbane team.

“Welcome to our four new drivers – Dave, Nathan, Ben and Corey! Exciting times ahead for Jarratt Transport Solutions,” it said in a post.

Managing Director, Phil Jarratt, told Prime Mover he was excited by the prospect of the new additions to the fleet.

“I couldn’t be happier with them and I think they’re good enough that we’ll probably buy some more,” he said.

“We’re thrilled with them, we’ve been Kenworth clients for a long time.

“I bought my first new Kenworth in 1997, and I’ve never bought a trailer off anybody else but Mick O’Phee.”

Jarratt received the prime movers last Tuesday [2 August] and picked up the O’Phee trailers from trailer builder, The Drake Group, the following day.

Jarratt Transport Logistics specifies the Kenworths in the fleet, for the main part, with icepacks, microwaves, inverters, full digital onboard scales and Teletrac Navman telematics.

“The four new ones are now into the fold and their drivers are settling in,” added Jarratt.

“‘Let the games begin’ was the catchphrase on Wednesday.”
