Followmont expands operations in Bundaberg

Express freight service provider, Followmont Transport, has opened a new depot in Bundaberg as it seeks to boost efficiencies for customers across Central Queensland.

Located in Svennson Heights, the new facility is now part of 30 sites the company operates across New South Wales and Queensland.

Celebrating 35 years of business this year, Followmont employs over 800 people, 150 local contractors and uses 1,000 pieces of equipment with UD Trucks one of its preferred commercial vehicles for the majority of its intrastate work.

General manager Chris Knuth said the new depot will benefit regional customers with an improved personalised customer service.

“We now have 100 per cent control of customers' freight, in and out of the region, and customers now have direct access to our network and services throughout Queensland and NSW, which is a big win for both Followmont and our customers,” he said.

“After much consultation, the decision to launch in Bundaberg was an easy one.”

The investment underlines steady growth the business had enjoyed in the region as it looks to "have better controls and systems in place to service customers in the Bundaberg area."

“Our people live by our values, and that passion drives the business to help others at any given time and we are excited to being a part of the Bundaberg community,” said Mark Tobin Followmont Managing Director.

Followmont's customer base includes Australia Post, Dulux, Repco and Mitre 10.

In 2018 the company was recognised by Dulux Group with its Freight Supplier Award.
