Parry Logistics unveils 50th new Kenworth purchase

Kenworth T610 SAR B-triple.

Tamworth freight carrier, Parry Logistics, has taken delivery of a new Kenworth 610SAR.

The milestone truck which represents the 50th Kenworth purchased by the business will spend half its operational life as a B-triple and the other half pulling a 34-pallet B-double.

Delivered by Alex Milne on behalf of the Brown and Hurley dealership in Tamworth, the prime mover is powered by a Cummins X15 600hp engine, paired with an 18-speed 22 series Eaton RoadRanger gearbox using a Meritor MT 46/160 driveline.

“It’s the first T610 we’ve bought,” said Owner Greg Parry.

“The driver wanted a bonneted truck and we were happy to give it to him,” he said.

That driver, Jeremy Mountain, has been with the company, which employs over 80 people, for eight years.

“These days drivers come and go so often it’s a great mark of service and loyalty we’re happy to acknowledge,” added Parry.

The new Kenworth T610SAR is the first of its kind in the fleet, which customarily runs K200s and T909s moving general freight across the eastern seaboard and western NSW.

Parry Logistics first established its presence in Tamworth in 2002 under Greg Parry’s leadership.

The business was founded by his father, the late Don Parry, in 1958 in Werris Creek after he purchased his first truck when he finished working for the railway.

The fleet consists entirely of the Kenworth brand and now possesses 50 prime movers with over 100 trailers.

“Business has slowed down a little from what we’ve seen the last three years,” said Parry.

“That certainly makes it more manageable than what it was given how busy things had gotten not long ago.

“Now, with a return to some normality, we can return to giving the customer the service they deserve.”
