Richers Transport takes delivery of 200th Mack

Transport company Richers Transport’s latest Mack order makes history

Queensland company Richers Transport has made history, as it becomes the company to take delivery of its 200th Mack truck.

Richers Transport has a history stretching back nearly nine decades; the company started out with just one Model T Ford and has just taken delivery of its 200th Mack.

Richers took delivery of the first Mack Anthem to hit the road in Australia last year so it’s fitting that it’s 200th Mack truck also proudly carries the Anthem badge.

“We choose to go with Mack for drivability, they’re great for the drivers, for fuel economy, and are equipped with a good safety package,” Richers Transport operations manager Tom Richers says.

“They’re great from a maintenance perspective as well.

“The service and back up we get from the dealer network is fantastic.”

Operationally, Richers Transport covers the entire Australian eastern seaboard from Cairns to Adelaide transporting groceries, particle board, alcohol, and general freight.

“We often talk about durability when we talk about Mack trucks,” says Mack Trucks Australia vice president Tom Chapman.

“However, durability of customer relationships such as the one forged between Mack and the Richers family over many decades is perhaps even more important.

Chapman says productivity and efficiency in trucks is vital in a modern transport operation.

“But an enduring partnership based on trust in both people and product doesn’t just happen overnight, it’s built over many years,” Chapman says.

“I’m very proud to mark this milestone event with the Richers family, it’s a testament to the strength of both brands, Richers transport and Mack trucks.”

The distinctive green and white Richers livery of the milestone Anthem is complemented by custom stainless-steel work and signwriting.

The MP8 powered Mack Anthem also features a walk-through 36-inch sleeper cab, and an integrated Bendix Wingman Fusion safety system as standard equipment.
