Hi-Trans Express specialise in general and express road transport of palletised freight around the nation.

With warehousing and distribution services located in every capital city in Australia, an all-encompassing network of well-established distribution routes that are supported by sophisticated systems, operations and industry leading technologies, you can be confident we can satisfy your freight transport requirements – no matter the scale of the transport operation.

Our transport services include:

From the Company’s inception the principle of offering a freight service with company owned vehicles has remained.

Hi-Trans Express firmly believes in owning its own fleet.

We know that fleet ownership offers us the kind of control over fleet movements, driver training and vehicle maintenance that is not possible with a fully subcontracted fleet, as employed by many of our competitors.

Today, Hi-Trans Express owns over 200 late-model units. This includes over 50 prime movers (with an average age of only 5 years) and in excess of 150 trailers.

Our comprehensive trailer fleet consists of the following configurations:

  • Flat Top
  • Flat Top Drop Deck
  • Tautliner
  • Tautliner Drop Deck
  • Dry Vans
  • Refrigerated Vans
  • Freezer Vans
  • Refrigerated Tautliners
  • Fluid Tankers
  • And More

Most of these trailer types are available in single, b-double, b-triple or road train configuration. Local delivery fleets are in place at all branches throughout our Australia-wide network.
