Linfox's History in Beverages

“Linfox’s first loads were coal for the Melbourne gasworks in winter. But in summer we delivered soft drink. I also delivered wooden crates to Schweppes and Coca-Cola for their bottles. I got to know everyone there and the friends I made there became our first major customers as Linfox grew. The Coca-Cola contract for Sydney in 1975 was a real milestone but in the 1980’s we added Queensland and Victoria.”
