There aren’t many people or companies in the road transport industry with as long and storied a history as Kelvyn and Shirley Fuller of K&S Fuller Transport. For nearly 60 years, their well-branded fleet has traversed Australia’s highways transporting all kinds of freight.
From humble beginnings in central NSW in the 1960s, K&S Fuller Transport built a respected reputation for providing safe, efficient and reliable transport services. The business moved to south-east Queensland in 1974 and operates a depot adjacent to the Port of Brisbane, Brisbane Airport and National Highway 1.
But now the company owners, industry legends Kelvyn and Shirley Fuller, who are the ‘K’ and ‘S’ in K&S Fuller Transport, have decided it’s time to travel a new road to retirement and greener pastures.
“We’ve been in the industry for nearly 60 years, so we feel like the time is right to move on and retire,” said Kelvyn Fuller.
“As a family owned and operated business, we are extremely grateful for the support and opportunities provided to us by our valued staff and customers. We have always strived to go above and beyond, and Shirley and I are particularly proud of what we have achieved together.”
K&S Fuller Transport have built a large fleet comprising trucks, refrigerated vans with split systems, tautliners, flat top trailers, rigid trucks, utilities, and container trailers. The company moved whatever needed moving, to wherever it needed to go. Decades of experience, combined with their infrastructure and networks, have helped K&S Fuller Transport efficiently move freight across town, across Queensland and across Australia.
The end of an era presents a great opportunity for other transport operators, or those aspiring to enter the industry. K&S Fuller Transport has appointed Grays to sell its entire fleet of more than 50 assets. Commencing in February 2023, this major online auction event will present buyers with over $5 million worth of quality transport assets.
Discerning buyers will find great value in the K&S Fuller Transport fleet, suited for general transportation services, but also comprising a number of temperature-controlled, refrigerated vehicles and trailers. Safe Food accredited vehicles and trailers have multi-zoned split systems to accommodate frozen, chilled, fresh and general freight in the same trailer, transported over large distances with multiple drop-offs as required.
Terry Rowland, national head of industrial at Grays, said, “We’re extremely proud and excited to have the opportunity to present this fleet to market via a major auction event. Kelvyn and Shirley have built an impressive business over a long period of time, and their fleet is well-presented, well-maintained and ready to get to work. This auction event is not to be missed by anyone looking to upgrade their fleet in 2023, or those looking to start a transport business.”
With K&S Fuller Transport reaching the end of the road, Kelvyn and Shirley Fuller will be pleased to see their much-loved and well cared for fleet go into the hands of the next generation of transport operators, with many more miles to be travelled.
