Ron Finemore Transport (RFT) has announced that it has entered into a new contract with Baiada to transport chilled and frozen poultry products.
According to RFT, the contract will require the purchase of some additional prime movers and refrigerated trailers.
"RFT’s reputation for being a safe and reliable regional based carrier has been a key part in us winning this contract," said RFT Managing Director, Mark Parry (pictured).
"Baiada has strong growth plans based on the forecast increased consumption of chicken meat across Australia. Demonstrating that we deliver to promise, are safe and reliable, and that we are a trusted partner, will position us to potentially expand our business with Baiada.
"The contracted work fits within our business model of being a regional based carrier, safely and reliably operating a modern fleet at high levels of utilisation and efficiency. It also provides further optimisation of some of our current fleet.
"I look forward to the RFT team demonstrating to Baiada that they have selected the right partner and through safe and reliable service becoming their transport supplier of choice as they grow their business."
