New hub for Booth Transport

June 20, 2017

Booth's Transport director Brian Booth, Parmalat milk supply manager Stefan Leske, Agriculture Minister Jaala Pulford, Booth human resources representative Jacqueline Booth and Booth Transport general manager Mitchell Booth.

Booth Transport is developing a new milk transport and logistics hub in Strathmerton which is expected to create 77 new jobs.

Established in 1936, Booth Transport is a family-owned company that provides freight, container and bulk liquid transportation, warehousing and logistics services nationally.

The new hub will include a milk transfer station, truck depot, heavy vehicle washing facility and specialty milk refrigeration silos.

Agriculture and Regional Development Minister Jaala Pulford toured the recently opened new facility on Friday.

In addition to creating new jobs, the new hub will deliver transport savings and improve productivity in the northern Victorian dairy region by reducing bottlenecks in the transport supply chain, particularly for interstate markets.

Member for Northern Victoria Jacyln Symes said it was exciting news for the Strathmerton region and for Booth Transport, taking it to the next stage of its bulk liquid transportation operations.
