Our History

Hume Transport is a 3rd generation family business that has serviced the road transport industry for over 50 years. Hume has grown from a one truck operator (Stanley Elliott) into a fleet of 70 company vehicles with an average fleet age of less then 3.5 years.

Today, we hold the same family values in a high paced industry which allows us to gain long term strong customer relationships.


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.


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.


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.
