MINING EQUIPMENT: Carter Heavy Haulage & Transport



Established in 2013, Carter Heavy Haulage & Transport is proud to be one of the leading providers of heavy haulage and logistics services in the Hunter region. Inspired when on holiday in Noosa, Leonnie and Josh Carter made the decision to combine their business and transport knowledge to bring Carter Heavy Haulage to life.

Since these humble beginnings, the company has grown – in staff numbers, fleet, equipment, and capability. Carter Heavy Haulage has an extensive range of industry-leading vehicles and trailers built for a range of heavy haulage and transportation needs. Safety and compliance, integrity and trust and continuous improvement of our services and operating systems is at the core of our business.

The Carter Heavy Haulage staff are key to the success of the business. With our dedicated team working around the clock to provide for clients, we remain focused on teamwork, safety, and quality assurance.

We are all about going the extra mile, our Chain of Responsibility commitment provides a solid foundation for our operations. Our award-winning safety management systems are regularly reviewed by our in house Compliance Manager to ensure that our workers, clients, customers and the general public return safely to their families each and every day. In doing so, Carter Heavy Haulage also ensures that we not only meet but exceed our obligations under the Heavy Vehicle National Law, Chain of Responsibility and Work Health and Safety requirements.

Our prestige safety systems were recognised by winning the 2019 Hunter Safety Award for the Best WHS Management System for a small to medium enterprise, an award that we were honoured to claim and are extremely proud of.
