Followmont Transport is a Queensland family-owned business that express delivers goods to every corner of Queensland and New South Wales, every day through their 1000+ vehicles and unique network of linehaul and local contractors.
Followmont started in 1984, delivering magazines out of a small office in Stones Corner, Brisbane, and are now the state’s largest family-owned transport company and the preferred Queensland and New South Wales carrier with 1000 staff, 24 company-owned regional depots, and a network of local contractors.
They specialise in time-sensitive delivery and go the extra mile to deliver regardless of obstacles, while constantly providing solutions to their customers’ transport requirements.
Now in operation for over 39 years, they have cemented themselves as an industry leader, providing stability for their team and creating a culture that is all about caring for each other, their customers, suppliers and communities. They pride themselves on the family culture that is felt throughout the business.
It’s their values, their people and the way they do things that sets them apart.
Managing director, Mark Tobin, knows that the people are the secret to the company’s success and puts everything back into their development and supporting business growth for the industry’s future.
“We have developed industry-leading training courses on safety and people leadership, offering best in class operations, onboarding and training programs which align to nationally recognised qualifications,” said Tobin.
This investment in their people has seen the training programs be awarded both Queensland Trucking Association and Australian Trucking Association Training Excellence Awards.
“We’re committed to putting back in, to providing a future for our people and creating a self-sustainable transport business,” Tobin added.
“Our team are the future leaders of industry and it’s their passion that drives Followmont forward.
“At the end of the day, we don’t own the business, our people do.”
