Who we are
A Second Generation Family Business
Greenfreight is a second-generation transport business which was founded in 1973 by Fred and Barbara Green.
Fred arrived in the Myrtleford region as a Mobil fuel agent and identified the need for a local LTL and contract cartage operation.
The burgeoning hops and tobacco industries of the region provided further opportunities to grow and expand the business into servicing local industry and providing general freight services.
The construction of the Australian Forest Industries Mill at Myrtleford prompted the expansion into plantation timber harvesting, log cartage to the Mill and distribution of finished products to customers on the Eastern Seaboard.
Major log haulage contracts were won to service the softwood transport needs of Australian Newsprint Mills at Ettamogah on the outskirts of Albury NSW. It was at this point Fred’s brother, Geoff Green, joined the business in 1980 to oversee Greenfreight’s forestry division.
Greenfreight’s Head Office was subsequently moved from Myrtleford to Albury around the early 1980’s to support the growth of the business.
Greenfreight then began to expand its range of transport services in the local region into food, beverage and retail. This rapid expansion was mainly accomplished via the purchasing of three smaller logistics companies in short succession.
A family business based upon the core principles of safety, cost effectiveness, customer service, innovation, reliability and flexibility.
We believe our growth is largely attributed to both the business’s ability to develop and maintain a close working relationship with our customers and via the commitment of our workforce.
Greenfreight continues to be a family-owned business with all three of Fred and Barbara’s children, Tony, Kate and Richard, performing various roles within the company, and committed to growing and developing the business into the future.
