Transport provider Exodas has taken on its biggest order of trucks in its more than 20 years of operation this week.
Seven new Volvos are rolling through the gates of its Yatala, Queensland depot. These range from FM11s and FH13s to fully loaded FH16 600 XXL Globetrotters.
The new trucks will take on duties across local distribution all the way up to multi trailer linehaul.
Exodas managing director Brett Tynan says that he and the company are already reaping the benefits from entering into the partnership with Volvo.
“We mainly cover the east coast of Australia with depots on the NSW Central Coast, Yatala, Townsville, Bowen, Tully and Mareeba and cart a lot of time sensitive freight,” he says.
“Just knowing that if there’s an issue the driver can get help at the push of a button makes a big different, it keeps our wheels turning and our business running.”
Tynan says that the workers at Volvo have been nothing but helpful so far.
“Obviously, we love the product, however it’s the back up and the people we deal with from Volvo on a daily basis that gets us over the line every time,” he continues.
“All our Volvo trucks are covered by gold service agreements which give us a lot more peace of mind when it comes to servicing, back up and costing.”
Founded in 2001 as an owner operator business with just two trucks, the Exodas fleet has now expanded to 100 prime moves and 30 rigids as well as a large fleet of trailers. These range from curtain-siders to fridge vans.
Exodas now operates across four depots in Queensland and New South Wales, with its fleet and employees continuing to grow.
Volvo Australia dealer principal Greg Sargeant welcomes Exodas into the partnership.
“Trust is vital in any partnership, and it’s great to see Exodas’ continued success and growth,” he says.
“We’re proud to have the Exodas team as part of the Volvo family, and we look forward to supporting them for many more years to come.”
