Linfox started with one truck in 1956, delivering soft drinks in summer and fuel in winter.
As a young Lindsay Fox grew the company, it was a natural progression to connect customers in regional NSW with the rest of Australia via their growing multi-model supply chain network.
Over six decades later, Linfox is the largest privately-owned logistics company in Australia with over 5,000 vehicles, 24,000 employees in 12 Asia Pacific countries and an annual turnover of $3 billion.
Yet Linfox’s roots run deepest in regional NSW where it supports communities by running everyday essentials across the state, and benefits from the strategic advantages of regional centres. Carrington is home to the company’s fuels transport, they do linehaul services for Carter Holt Harvey in Berkeley Vale and Tumut, and they support the Australian Defence Force in Williamtown and Singleton.
In fact, across regional NSW, there are approximately 500 employees and 100 sub-contractor drivers providing world leading supply chain solutions to multinational companies like Coles, Woolworths, Kmart, Mars, Dulux, BP and Australia Post. A great example of this is their major warehousing services for Sanitarium and MasterFoods in Berkeley Vale on the Central Coast.
Today, Linfox provides long distance transport services across road, rail and coastal shipping to give customers the most effective mode of transport. Strong infrastructure in regional NSW means freight can be moved by road and rail to inner Sydney and interstate via Linfox’s intermodal network, with access to international ports.
