HANDLING

Palm Trans is a privately owned family
Company managed by Darren & Julie Palmer.
Today operating 50 prime movers throughout
the East Coast and South Australia.

Established in 1985 with the focus of providing local work around
Melbourne and Sydney along with Express Interstate and container cartage.

FACILITIES

Our Head Office is currently based on 5 acres in Laverton North, Melbourne. All administration is handled from here. Proof of deliveries and accounting queries are directed to the Melbourne Office.

We have a fully staffed depot in Sydney which has recently relocated to a new premise in Eastern Creek.  Storage facilities are also available in both cities. Our aim is to provide a safe harmonious working environment conducive to good employee and community relations. Local delivery trucks are based in Melbourne and Sydney and distribute to the metro area.

Occupational Health and Safety must be both an individual and a shared responsibility. Safety is a team commitment involving clients, managers, employees, drivers and sub contractors, all working together through consultation and co-operation. Our objective is to provide all personnel at our sites with an environment that is free of risk to their health and safety.

SUPPORT FACILITIES

The vehicle workshop at the Melbourne Depot is manned by qualified technicians who check each vehicle on return to the depot. Our vehicle servicing program is monitored closely and routine vehicle maintenance and repairs are carried out in the workshop. Other vehicle repairs are contracted out to those who specialise in the type of repair required.

Our prime mover fleet are of the latest models, an indication of our priority to safety and vehicle reliability. The trailer fleet is also updated regularly but with our dedication to safety, each trailer is inspected on a regular basis to ensure the highest possible safety possible for our drivers, the goods we carry and other road users. Our local vehicles are maintained in the same manner as the interstate fleet.

Our vehicle wash bay is used constantly to ensure our fleet is not only maintained in peak condition but looks good at all times.
