Queensland-based transport business Exodas has added half a dozen Kenworth K200 prime movers to its fleet over the past six weeks.
Delivered by Brown and Hurley, Yatala, the new trucks will be put to good use as the business continues to grow and expand.
The new K200s will work the linehaul refrigerated and general freight runs, operating across the eastern seaboard between Brisbane, far north Queensland, Sydney and Melbourne.
As well as the six new additions, Exodas also welcomed a flashy Diamond Edition K200 earlier this year. It was the company’s 50th Kenworth and one of 75 limited edition Kenworths released to mark Brown and Hurley’s 75th anniversary.
Exodas was started in 2001 by managing director Brett Tynan. From two trucks, he’s grown his fleet around 120 vehicles – a mix of Kenworths and European cab-overs.
The business also operates four depots across Queensland and New South Wales, and employs approximately 200 staff.
Tynan says being based at Yatala puts the business at an advantage when it comes to keeping the fleet in tip-top shape.
The company does its own scheduled servicing and maintenance on the Kenworths, and any jobs are complete by Brown and Hurley, just a stone’s throw away, and Cummins.
The company’s growth has been a mix of organic growth and the acquisitions of several smaller transport companies.
“I didn’t plan to grow the business to this size, but when good opportunities come along you’d be crazy not to take them,” he said.
