The Teerman’s Transport fleet has made its final run, in a convoy through the town of Leeton, NSW, as its owners shut shop to step into retirement.
For many years, the dark green and white trucks from the family owned and operated Teerman’s Transport were a familiar sight around Leeton and Griffith, as they set off for their daily runs into Sydney and Melbourne.
It was an emotional scene earlier this month as Teerman’s drivers made their way through the town of Leeton, honking their horns and bidding the company farewell.
Many of Teerman’s Transport’s long-term customers have taken to social media to sing their praises of the business for its service and contribution to the industry.
Fresh produce company Rinaland, from the Riverina in NSW, wrote on Facebook, “Teermans Transport have helped carry our produce wherever and whenever we’ve needed them to. Nothing was ever too difficult and there was always a way to make it work. So with much sadness this loyal and enduring partnership has come to an end.”
Pacific Fresh said, “What an emotional day yesterday seeing Teerman’s Transport PTY LTD do their last run through Leeton and out at Pacific Fresh. Thank you to all of Teermans Transport Family, drivers and staff for looking after our produce over the last 20 years. We wish you all the very best in your future endeavours.”
The entire Teerman’s Transport fleet will now go under the hammer at an auction hosted by Pickles on April 22 at the Pickles Wagga Wagga Branch.
