Truckie Profiles

A great career choice for this truckie

Steering a truck for about 30 years or so, Dwayne Holmes is enjoying life on the road and says it’s been a great career choice for him.

It was so good to catch up with Dwayne Holmes form Turner’s Beach, enjoying some of our beautiful southern Tassie weather.

He was driving a Tasstockfeed’s 2018 FM 540 Volvo at the time and towing a tipper bin on his return leg to Devonport from Hobart.

“I brought down a load of wheat this morning and I am now running back empty to the depot and then I am sure looking forward to knocking off for the day and going home to a warm welcoming house, and I surely always do look forward to that part of the day,” he said.

“I’ve been here with this crowd for 16 months now, and they are a top outfit and they are certainly keeping us flat out just now, and that’s a good way to be.

“It’s been a good life, and I reckon I’m happy all up just now. Time off is at a bit of a premium now days, but when I do get to have a bit of spare time, I enjoy getting among motor bikes and stuff.”
