  • New website goes live

    This week we’re excited to launch McColl’s new look website.

    The bold, modern design and new features reflect our efforts to put McColl’s personnel and business partners first in every aspect of our business.

    As well as giving you an insight into our services, operations, values, fleet and safety initiatives, the updated site will make it easy and interesting to find the information you need.

    You’ll find the latest news and some great articles about the people behind the scenes at McColl’s.

    Technology is constantly improving and so are we, that’s why we hope you’ll take a look and let us know what you think.

  • New structure enhances customer service

    To enhance the service we provide our customers, McColl’s has appointed two new Regional Managers in our Dairy Division in New South Wales.

    Barry Edwards has taken on the role of Regional Manager Central West NSW (Cowra & Orange). Having owned and operated his own transport business, Barry brings a wealth of experience to the role.

    In Bomaderry, Peter Ryan has stepped into the position of Regional Manager from his previous position as scheduler for our Bulk Food Division. His new role will see him looking after the Dairy Division operations in Bomaderry, Mittagong and Albion Park (Jamberoo) as well as overseeing Bulk Food operations together with Cameron Bendall.

    The new structure in Bomaderry will provide for greater synergies in drivers, vehicles and administrative tasks between the Dairy and Bulk Food Divisions.

  • Long-serving staff acknowledged

    Our loyal staff members are one of our greatest strengths and we are fortunate to have a lot of the McColl’s team choose to remain with us over many, many years.

    Our customers can draw on the decades of accumulated experience that our longest serving staff bring to every division and every region we operate in.

    In December, 23 staff members received awards for chalking up 10, 15 or 20 years’ service and one – Warranty Manager Neil Mousley – was acknowledged for his 35 years with McColl’s.

    Together they represent an incredible 335 years of service with McColl’s!

    We are proud to have them on the team.

  • Managing fatigue

    As part of our commitment to the safety of our people, our customers and those we share the roads with, McColl’s is constantly working to monitor and manage driver fatigue.

    Industry studies show driving while tired is a major cause of fatal crashes and is a contributing factor in up to 60 per cent of all heavy vehicle crashes.

    In addition to ensuring we comply with all regulations around rostering and driving hours, McColl’s works hard to ensure our drivers understand the causes of fatigue and what they can do to prevent it.

    Our drivers are encouraged to get plenty of sleep, take regular breaks and look after their health by eating well and exercising.  Our in cabin dashmate device also helps our drivers proactively manage their hours.
