Transport and freight

Whether it’s fresh produce or bulk fuel, after 65 years Linfox will always deliver.

Our safe, modern fleet travels around 450 million kilometres every year delivering essential goods across Asia Pacific.

Recognised, iconic brands trust us with their valuable freight, indeed many of those customer partnerships endure through the decades.

Metropolitan, intrastate, interstate or across countries, our extensive local knowledge sees us design and deliver the most efficient transport and freight solutions, backed by leading logistics technology.  

Linfox is taking another big step in our fleet investment and commitment to act sustainably, with the trial of six electric vehicles on metropolitan routes in 2021.

These vehicles of the future represent a remarkable turning point in the history of Linfox and our customers.

Road freight

Linfox’s 5,000-strong fleet is one of the youngest, safest and most environmentally friendly on the road.

Our established and optimised delivery networks across Asia-Pacific ensure our customers’ products are delivered safely and efficiently.

We design, select and source the best prime movers, road trains, tankers, trailers and containers to transport a vast range of ambient and temperature-controlled goods.

Our customers’ needs are unique, and our large network of company fleet, hauliers and transport partners are geared for this, particularly during periods of high demand.

We always make our fleet decisions in line with our commitment to lead in safety and compliance, and to act sustainably.

Linfox’s leading-edge transport management system ensures road freight operations are efficient and safe. Our in-vehicle telematics ensure freight visibility, and customers can be assured of compliance with relevant local laws.

Rail freight

Linfox’s growing rail footprint is well positioned to share the load with road transport.

This is particularly important as Australia’s freight demand is forecast to significantly increase in coming decades.

Linfox offers end-to-end rail logistics through a growing portfolio of strategic rail depots, heavy lifting equipment and local pick-up and delivery solutions. More than 4,500 of our specialised containers travel 30 million kilometres annually.

These rail containers include cubic, refrigerated and flat rack equipment, delivering specialised transport solutions for all types of freight movements.
