Truckie Profiles

Young Townsville truckie is loving the job

Enthusiastic young truckie Morgan Power, aged 30, drives an Isuzu 350 for Townsville based CKC Haulage.

When Big Rigs saw Morgan mid-morning recently, he was parked at a business on busy Bowen Road.

“I am delivering carpet and mostly do work around town,” he said.

Although he does get occasional jobs to places like historical Ravenswood which is 120km from Townsville.

“When I get out there I like stopping at the Top Camp Roadhouse,” he said.

Morgan has worked for this company for a year and before that was employed by Bidfood.

“I used to drive a Freightliner out to Mount Isa,” he said.

That is a gruelling 900km trip along the Flinders and Barkly Highways.

Morgan loves the job and the truck which he said was well maintained and comfortable.

Outside work Morgan enjoys watching V8 Supercars and is looking forward to the coming event in Townsville from July 5-7.

CKC Haulage is a family-owned and operated business that spans generations.

Since 1993, owner Kev and his team have provided general, bulk and dangerous goods transport for domestic, commercial, mining and construction clients throughout Queensland and Australia-wide.

It employs 20 staff and has depots in Townsville, Mackay and Brisbane.

The Mackay depot is managed by Kev’s daughter Stevie, while daughter Taylor books all the freight for the Townsville depot. And mother Cheryl also works in the Townsville depot.
