Truckie Profiles

Following his father’s footsteps

Working for Cairns based Simon George and Sons, Rob Martin was delivering supplies to the Central Hotel in Port Douglas when Big Rigs saw him driving a Hino Euro5 Series light rig.

A doting father of three daughters aged two, seven and 12, he delivers general and food to pubs, restaurants and other places and likes Port Douglas which is a busy town.

“I was born at Nambour but have been in Cairns for 30 years. My dad Snow got me into truck driving when I was 18,” he said.

Martin previously worked for six years as a courier driver and now has a MR licence. He told us he wants to drive heavier trucks in the not too distant future.

According to Martin, the worst road he had encountered was some time ago between Cloncurry in the Queensland outback to the Three Ways in the NT.
