Days Logistics is celebrating 87 years of business in the transport industry in 2015, and have been involved in the transportation of bulk fuel and oil in the petroleum industry for over 50 years.
The transport company was founded by Mr Edward (Ted) Day in 1928, with a T Model Ford carting wheat, wool and fertiliser on and off the rail in the Riverina township of Oaklands, and the business continued to flourish and played an instrumental part in the construction of the Tocumwal aerodrome during WWII, carting gravel and cement.
The awarding of a contract to cart fuel for BP in the mid 1960’s into Southern New South Wales and the ACT with a single road tanker, resulted in the family name becoming synonymous with road transport in the Riverina (and may well be the oldest surviving transport company in the Riverina) and has been recognised at the National Road Transport Hall of Fame in Alice Springs. Ted was inducted to the Hall of Fame, in 2000 and his sons Pat and Wally were inducted in 2005. Since this time the company has undergone many changes, including Pat’s two sons, Peter and Gavin progressing to management roles in 1990’s.
Peter is Managing Director Days Logistics, and Gavin is the Manager of the Day Group of Companies Farming Operations.
During Peter's tenure, he has committed to the continual upgrading of Prime Movers and Road Tankers to deliver on his commitment and strive to provide the highest level of service.
Currently the company operates a fleet 33 Prime Movers, in addition to 4 B-Double tipper combinations.
