MANAGER - VICTORIA
As a manager of Tri State Transport, I am entrusted with the development & growth of the business not only in Victoria, but as part of the managerial team Australia-wide.
From its beginnings in Melbourne in 2006, Tri State Transport has provided great challenges both in a business sense & personally. The continual development of the customer & sub-contractor base & employment of staff & assets is extremely satisfying.
Additionally, I enjoy the challenges of legislative & safety training & development within the transport industry.
The Tri State Transport team are warm, friendly & are devoted to providing a professional service. I very much feel that my efforts are appreciated & in turn our clients feel the same & that's what counts!
Personally, I enjoy all aspects of the transport industry & look forward to the continual development of the business, to which I have great expectation. This challenge alone provides me with focus & a want to continue to work for Tri State Transport for many years to come.
MANAGER - NEW SOUTH WALES
As a key member of the Tri State Transport family, joining the company in its infancy and playing a pivotal role in its current success as a well established and highly regarded logistics organisation, I have enjoyed building the company’s reputation and credibility Australia wide.
Tri State’s owners have assisted me in my endeavours to transform the NSW branch into a cost effective and productive arm of the company. They have done this by providing me with the autonomy and freedom to conduct business based on local conditions on the ground.
This hands-off approach and trust in the decision making ability of those on the front line has resulted in a highly efficient and harmonious working relationship between the company’s three branches.
I find that the most fulfilling part of my job is the close personal and professional relationships I have developed with our extremely loyal customer base. Over the past sixteen years Tri State Transport has become more than a mere job, more than a career, it has become my second home.
MANAGER - WESTERN AUSTRALIA
After spending nine years with our sister company Nor-Well Transport I have finally become part of the Tri State family. There was a lot of resistance on my behalf to making the move to Tri- State but since my arrival I think the move was long overdue.
Tri State WA was originally perceived as just the admin centre for the company, but it has developed its own client base and by doing so aided in growing the business for the benefit of Tri State as a whole.
During my relatively short time with the company there have been many changes within the Transport Industry, both nationally and in West Australia. We have seen the introduction of the “Chain of Responsibility” and also “Compliance and Enforcement” legislations, which encompassed Mass & Dimensional requirements when completing your WA Main Roads annual audits. Whilst rates are being driven down trying to recoup the costs incurred from these new legislations that resulted in more paperwork for transport companies and their drivers in order for them to maintain these accreditations which are necessary to operate are difficult.
ADMIN - VICTORIA
I have been a team member of the Tristate Transport Victorian depot since 2011 and during this time have found that the company has a strong focus on team work.
It’s great to be working in a team environment with dedicated, friendly and professional team members who all get on well and that can have a laugh together.
I have always worked in transport and I find that the Tristate working atmosphere makes it a pleasure to come to work every day, where I feel that my efforts are appreciated.
The management is extremely generous to team members, and I feel very lucky to be involved in the team.
