From one truck and trailer to over 100 units on the road – Booth’s has been delivering reliable and professional transport services for over 25 years.
THE EARLY DAYS
Booth’s Transport has been operating for over 25 years and was founded by Graham Booth in the early 90s as an extension of his Manawatu farming operation. During this time the company, which is still New Zealand family-owned and operated, has grown from a single truck operation into a fleet of over 100 vehicles, and a staff of over 200. Graham’s sons Craig and Trevor Booth now operate the business which is still proudly headquartered in the Lower North Island distribution hub of Palmerston North.
Continued growth has seen the development of operational branches and facilities in Wellington, Mount Maunganui, Auckland, and an operational network spanning the North Island, along with significant inter-island services.
Today, Booth’s have a large fleet of modern linehaul and metro trucks with low emissions, the latest technology, health and safety systems, and which have a wide range of capability and providing nationwide transport solutions.
In 2019, brothers, Craig and Trevor Booth added Tomoana Warehousing Ltd to their business portfolio as part of the newly established Booth’s Group to increase their service offering, resources and capability around the Napier port.
In 2021, Booth’s acquired Couplands Transport and Great Lake Transport to further extend our geographical reach and resources in both the Waikato and Auckland regions.
In March 2022 The Produce Connection was added to the group. With a focus on produce transportation including a temperature controlled fleet, the company harked back to its roots as Booth’s Transport was originally established as a produce transporter carrying potatoes to the Auckland market from its home base in the Manawatu.
Booth’s Group have more resources to help our customers with a wide-number of transport, warehousing and logistics solutions.
