Keith and Marg Hendy started Hendy Transport in the early 70s with one ‘butter box’ Acco carting sheep to the Donald Abattoir. When the abattoir folded they did a bit of interstate work carting tiles to Adelaide.
In the early 80s they purchased their first tipper. They also started carting live poultry.
In the late 80s, the purchase of an existing business helped them to expand into general small freight. They bought their first refrigerated truck soon after and carted offal to Wodonga overnight.
The early 90s saw Troy return to the business, & the purchase of another transport company – the beginning of carting to local IGA supermarkets, while still carting general freight in and out of Melbourne. The purchase of tankers & tippers began the carting of bulk stockfeed & grain.
The turn of the century saw the company continue to grow, & Rob joining the business, & was the beginning of intensively moving bulk stockfeed and grain throughout Victoria.
In 2014 Hendy Transport purchased a double set of Jinker logging trailers to cart logs out of the south west of the state. This saw Keith, Margaret, Troy and Rob branch out (no pun intended) and further diversify the business.
Now servicing Victoria, South Australia, New South Wales, & Queensland, over the span of five decades Hendy Transport has continued to grow its modern fleet of trucks and trailers, and an extensive list of subcontractors and great staff to become one of rural Victoria’s small business success stories.
