Ron Finemore Transport awarded Woolworths contract

Wodonga-based transport company, Ron Finemore Transport (RFT) has been awarded the Woolworths Refrigerated Meat Co Melbourne – Sydney – Melbourne looping service contract for the next three years.
RFT said in a statement that the freight task aligns with its continued investment in its driver and operational skill sets, market leading technology platforms, advanced temperature control safety features and its desire to increase its refrigeration footprint.
“RFT’s ability to provide live temperature GPS tracking data and set point temperature alert messaging configurations were highly valued by the Woolworths team, as is our proven ability within the NDC Melbourne – Sydney Linehaul shuttle contracts,” the company added.
“RFT’s continued investment in Blue Tree IT platforms enables our business to lead the market in real time location and temperature monitoring of product ranges.
“This new contract allows the opportunity for professional refrigeration drivers to join our RFT team to safely optimise our performance in this new business opportunity. It will also be important to continue to service the existing Woolworths contracts safely and reliably as well as deliver on the requirements of this new contract.
“Our performance, reputation and capability to retain and win work is determined by our continued ability to provide safe and reliable service and delivery to promise.”
The contract will commence on 16 April 2018, with four single 26-pallet refrigeration vehicles operating daily with an extra vehicle for Thursday service. RFT reportedly moves to B-double 36-pallet refrigeration vehicles in September/October 2018.
