Hume Transport has grown from a small family business to a large interstate company which continues to grow while still holding the same family values.
Hume Transport strives to perform all tasks in a professional and efficient manner, whilst complying with all necessary government requirements.
Hume Transport engages in providing its own maintenance including servicing, repairs and tyres with Glenn’s son, Thomas joining the company as service manager. Tom’s knowledge and expertise in all aspects of servicing is excellent. He has already made a difference in the general efficiency and appearance of the Hume Transport workshop.
The Elliott family commenced business, as the partnership of Stan and Jenny Elliott. As part of a conscious effort to operate a professional and successful business a company was formed under the name S.E & J.D Elliott Enterprises Pty Ltd in 1980.
Another transport company was acquired to source new contracts, and the company grew to running 8 semi trailers, using 20 full time subcontractors and 30 part time subcontractors. It was during this period that the relationship between the company and its biggest clients was consolidated, so much so that many of these clients remain major customers to this day.
Stan and Jenny’s son, Glenn Elliott took over the family business and is now the managing director of the company. Glenn has continued to grow the company by establishing new business relationships, while also providing the same high standard of professionalism to existing clientele.
The business adopted the trading name Hume Transport, on the advice that if the business was to continue to grow the family name needed to be eliminated, and a simpler more appropriate name would lead a major improvement.
Hume transport is proud of all its employees. All staff are self motivated, reliable, efficient, and loyal to the company. The company drivers take pride in their work, and the general presentation of vehicles is a tribute to their ongoing attitude to the company’s public face.
