Why Choose Us

A Personal Service

Our "service first" focus is on you, not us!

Our commitment to our customers is to ensure efficient, reliable and trouble free management of your freight requirements - by providing the very best service along with the very best rates.

At Hughes, we understand that freight costs are a large expense to your business, we also understand that there are many customers in the market that are receiving below average service with ever increasing rates - To us the two just don't go together.

Our drivers have been chosen firstly for there people skills, then their driving abilities. We train them in customer service, specifically so they understand they are the everyday face of your business, providing that all-important face to face contact with your key clients.

We know how frustrating it is to have freight lost, late or damaged. Hughes Transport places a lot of effort into minimising these events by understanding your products, needs and expectations.

Rather than you feeling you have to conform to our systems, we can and will adapt to fit your business needs and requirements.

And when tracking your freight is vital, we can easily provide prompt proof of delivery reports anytime you need it.
