Our Story

It’s a long story, so we’ll keep it short.

Farmers Transport has been carting loads around rural New Zealand since 1966.

Our story is about making the most of opportunities. It’s about a series of collaborations and purchases over time to become one of New Zealand’s larger rural cartage companies and a recognized specialist in livestock transport.

Today we are a business that is well equipped to handle any rural cartage job. We operate a fleet of 90 trucks, we have a network of 9 branches in key regions of the North Island and are supported throughout the South Island by the rural cartage businesses owned by the HW Richardson Group. We have a team that understands the diverse yet specific needs of our agricultural economy.

Livestock customers including farmers, agents, stock companies and our largest primary processors and exporters, look to us for our ability to plan, implement and manage movements across the whole of New Zealand.
