Stopping at Little River for fuel we met Josh Gardner from Melbourne, who was driving a Tasmanian SRT Logistics 450 Iveco Stralis towing a fridge pan.
He was also on his way to catch the Spirit of Tasmania at Geelong.
“I’ve been on the road now for 15 years all up and I reckon it is a top job,” Gardner said.
“For the last five years I have been working here for SRT.
“They have great management and have always looked after me, hence this is my longest job, and I am truly happy here.
“I reckon the move to Geelong was a good one, as unless you have to go into Melbourne, or maybe Eastern Victoria, it saves all the hassle of city traffic. I was here on day one of the move from Station Pier to Geelong, in fact I rolled up with the second truck to load.”
