Wodonga-based food and fuel carrier, Ron Finemore Transport, has secured a new supermarket contract.
The account will see Ron Finemore Transport fulfilling deliveries for the Aldi supermarket chain in and around Canberra.
Operations commenced in early August and will continue across two stages.
Prime Mover understands that Ron Finemore Transport plans to take advantage of the recent opening of its new depot in Goulburn.
Up to 20 trucks will eventually be involved in the operation.
Ron Finemore Transport, which maintains its head office in country Victoria, said it was continuing to invest in its regional focus.
With its resource base for all regional distribution, interstate freight services and capital city logistics situated in Wodonga, the company is firmly committed to remaining a presence in the area running a fleet it wholly owns while supporting regional areas by actively creating opportunities for people to work and live.
“This new contract with Aldi provides a great opportunity for Ron Finemore Transport to demonstrate the ability to deliver a safe, reliable service to selected stores and shows the trust Aldi have in Ron Finemore Transport and in our dedicated operations teams and our drivers in order to make this happen,” said Mark Parry Ron Finemore Transport Managing Director.
The Ron Finemore Transport Aldi fleet is a dedicated fleet which the company expects will grow over time.
The contract also involves new prime movers and trailers which will deliver food from the Sydney Prestons DC to Aldi stores through the ACT region.
