There are signs Lennons Transport Services is starting to rebuild its reputation, with the company picking up new work in the wake of a well-publicised crackdown on its operation earlier this year.

New South Wales Police and the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) targeted Lennons in February in response to a crash involving one of its trucks that killed three people in January.

Lennons was accused of a range of offences, including tampering with speed limiters and falsifying work diaries. The company has disputed many of the accusations made against it.

Speaking to ATN, Director Tony Lennon says work volume has increased.

"The public perception has dropped out at the moment and on the industry side of things there are no issues. We have picked up extra different work so I think our reputation is starting to regain itself," he says.

"On a daily basis we are picking up different jobs for different companies which are one-off jobs but they all add up at the end of the week."

Lennon says long-time customers have stood by his company.

"Nothing has really changed. Our vehicles are out on the road, they’re doing the right thing and the clients we are dealing with are happy [with] what we are supplying them," he says.

"At the end of the day that’s all they care about."

Authorities also targeted Scott’s of Mt Gambier, Damorange and Fred’s Interstate Transport for speeding offences, handing out more than 1,000 court attendance notices in total.
