Stuart Drummond Transport Wins Century Battery Competition


Stuart Drummond Transport started in 1985 providing log cartage to the Nelson/Marlborough regions. From their very first unit back in 1985, Stuart Drummond Transport has grown to an impressive fleet of 38 log Trucks – including eight Hino 700 Series FY1E 8x4’s which provide exceptional quality, durability and reliability to the fleet. Company Manager Brodie Drummond, winner of the 2016 Truckstops V8 Formula Challenge in Taupo, is expecting growth to continue with log cartage in excess of 800,000 tonnes of logs a year. This increase is bolstered from private forests due for harvest from the governments incentive scheme of the 1980’s.

The two companies have shared a very strong relationship over the last several years with Truckstops supporting the Hino product through genuine Hino parts supply and servicing/repair support. The competitive All Makes program offered by Truckstops provides options for other truck parts & trailer equipment.
