Lindsay’s prides itself on our fleet.
Each year we purchase new trucks to ensure the average of our trucks is kept low and we can proudly say we are one of the youngest fleets on the road. Our preference is vehicles in Kenworth and DAF with a predominant focus on B-double transport, and opportunities ranging from a Heavy Rigid up to a Road Train. Our drivers take great pride in carrying the Lindsay Brand and strive to keep their trucks looking as good as new inside and out.
All our trucks are fitted with the latest technology this includes, fatigue monitoring and electronic work diaries to make it easier for our drivers to monitor their speed and fatigue and allows for satellite tracking of all our vehicles.
We offer our office staff well maintained complexes with all the necessary facilities, with new depots being updated and built every year in line with the company’s vision of the future. We also are constantly changing the way we work and using the latest technology to ensure our day to day business runs as smooth as possible.

THE LINDSAY STORY
Lindsay Brothers was established in March 1953 by Tom and the late Peter Lindsay when they signed a contract to buy 3 second hand trucks from their father, Victor Lindsay.
The business initially carried local fruit and vegetables to the trains in Coffs Harbour for transportation to the Sydney markets. They then went on to transport timber to Sydney and then bring fuel back out of Newcastle to Coffs Harbour. This was the beginning of the Lindsay Brothers legacy.
In 1983 a small rural supply company in the Bundaberg region called P & H Rural commenced, it was the foundation of Lindsay Rural today.
In 2001 the Lindsay Australia Limited company we know today was listed on the Australian Securities Exchange, incorporating both the Lindsay Transport business and the Lindsay Rural business formerly known as P & H Rural supplies Pty Ltd.
In 2014 Lindsay Fresh Logistics was launched, operating from the Brisbane markets it offers customers a range of services including unloading, cross docking, storage, ripening, fumigation, sterilisation, quarantine and inspection related services for produce export.
