what our customers have to say about us

“We feel that our distribution has never been in better hands”

“NZ Drinks was established in 2010 and over the last 10 years, we have used a number of transport providers and feel that our distribution has never been in better hands. 

Booth’s Transport had been our service provider for the Lower North Island for a number of years, providing our customers with excellent service. Earlier this year the opportunity arose to move our Upper North Island business from our previous supplier, to exclusively Booth’s and it is was an easy decision for the management team to the make.

The high level of service they provide, the relationships built over the years, and Booth’s ability to upscale at short notice for increase demand, whether that be through natural disaster, or seasonal increases in demand: the team are always able to step up and provide a first class service standard.

We see Booth’s as more than a service provider and more as an extension of our own business. They are the key link between NZ Drinks and our customers. We feel this role is a crucial one and one that Booth’s excel in providing. We would not hesitate to recommend them as the first choice to move our product throughout New Zealand.”

what our customers have to say about us

“With this new fleet we have significantly reduced the number of trucks on the road, as well as our diesel milage and gas emissions, all whilst achieving fantastic DIFOT results and a drop in product damage to less than 0.1%” 

“About 8 years ago, we decided to review our logistics networks and went to market with a series of tenders to explore ways to improve our freight reliability, as well as create greater efficiencies and reduce product damage. 


Booth’s Transport approached us having done some in-depth laneway analysis with a plan to roll out a 10 axle 60t fleet and setup what at the time would be only the second heavy permitted laneway in New Zealand. This new dedicated fleet would allow us to have less trucks on the road, whilst still meeting the requirement to have the site serviced 7 days a week, 350 days of the year. This was done by scaling up from 24t loads to 40t loads, allowing us to significantly reduce our gas emissions and diesel mileage, as well as reduce the total number of trucks needed to be both on the road and onsite. Addition of eRoad tracking would also provide the necessary visibility to prepare for the inbound truck by picking the product and creating the manifest before they arrive and therefore turn them around with much greater efficiencies.

After making the call to give Booth’s Transport a go, we experienced a seamless implementation, exceptional communication and flexibility to move with surging production rates where needed. With the establishment of this new and captive fleet we have experienced fantastic DIFOT results and because the new fleet included countersunk floors and headboards, as well as “curved” corner boards, our product damage rates have dropped from 3 – 4% per annum to what is now less than 0.1%.”

what our customers have to say about us

“Booth’s high calibre drivers are courteous, helpful and willing to go the extra mile to ensure our customers receive seamless deliveries.”

“Supsup is a 100% New Zealand owned and operated company supplying straw & supplement directly from paddock to farmer, primarily throughout the Waikato, Taranaki and Bay of Plenty regions. Our strategic partnership with Booths Transport Ltd ensures we can deliver on time and in full.


Booth’s have extensive experience in all facets of transportation and take the time to thoroughly understand the complexity of our business. We have sporadic and fluctuating needs, Booth’s are highly flexible and do as much as they possibly can to meet our requirements.

We cover some relatively remote locations in our line of business, however, Booth’s are highly organised at managing all aspects of both pick-up and drop-off to these points. Their order tracking system we have access to provides visibility over many parts of our order journey which saves us valuable time and allows us to provide live updates to our customers around status and timing.

Most importantly, Booth’s high calibre drivers are courteous, helpful and are willing to go the extra mile to ensure our customers receive seamless deliveries.”
