Killen Trucking Company has been operating since the early 1980’s, first established in Bendigo carting fat, bone and offal for rendering. The company then began to cart raw animal by-products directly from abattoirs for processing into pet food. The company later opened a second depot in Howlong NSW and branched out into transporting blood via tankers, edible meat products and general freight both locally and interstate deliveries. Our latest transport operations have been in container cartage to the Melbourne wharfs for export of animal by-products. We have staff contactable 24 hours 7 days a week.
