To mark the 75th anniversary of the iconic Freighter badge in Australia, we caught up with one of the brand’s most loyal supporters, Ross Transport in Port Kembla, to find out why the trailers have been such an integral part of their business over the years.
Jack Hellyer bought his first Freighter trailer in 1990. Since then the fleet at Victorian-based JL Transport has grown close to 60 trailers, with the majority of them Freighter.
It was 75 years ago that the Freighter products rolled onto Australian roads. Now, as the trailer brand celebrates its latest milestone, it reflects on a long and rich history.
