Matic lands largest Volvo ever produced at Wacol

The biggest Volvo ever made in Australia.

To celebrate its 20th anniversary, Matic Transport, has taken delivery of a new Volvo FH16 XXL 700hp prime mover.

The twin-steer tri-drive truck is the largest Volvo to roll off the Wacol assembly line in Brisbane.

Matic Group operates a modern fleet of 200-plus trucks of predominantly Volvo prime movers along with over 750 pieces of trailing equipment.

“It was a proud moment for Danny and Katia to receive the keys for the first Wacol built FH16 XXL cab, twin-steer tri–drive”, Regional Commercial Manager Anthony Raisch said.

The new Volvo FH16 10×6 prime mover has a GCM of over 200t and will be transporting cement in pressurised tankers based out of Geraldton to remote mining sites around Western Australia.

Kevin Kelly, General Manager Volvo Sales at Truck Centre WA said the truck signifies 20 years of dedication on Danny Matic’s part.

“Danny can be described as a man who has a genuine respect for all, has always had a dogmatic approach to find better ways to service his customers, which in turn has allowed Matic Group to be at the forefront of providing innovative transport solutions,” said Kelly.

Matic, who continues to be driven by the dedication his team afforded the business, wanted a truck that had high GCM, high horsepower and a “big cab” for driver comfort. But it had to be safe for his driver Tony Watson.

One of Matic’s company values is safety.

The Matic Group was established in 2002 by Danny and Katia Matic and operates several business entities under the group umbrella.

This includes Matic Transport Australia, Matic Resources and Bibra Lake Trailers with offices in Perth, Geraldton, Newman, Tom Price, Karratha, Darwin, Alice Springs and Adelaide.

It is a family owned, diversified transport and logistics company that specialises in servicing the resources, construction materials and oil and gas sectors.

The company invests heavily in safety resources and undertakes multiple campaigns to drive the safety culture across its entire operations.

Truck Centre WA has partnered with the company since its inception.
