Haulage Transport

Local transport operators going the distance

This Port Albert based transport company has been digging, moving and transporting supplies all over Rodney for nearly 50 years.  Dave’s grandfather, Charlie Smith, set up the business. Dave and Keryn Smith then bought the company from Dave’s parents in 2015, developing it into the business that it is today. As a third-generation Smiths Transport owner, driver and operator, Dave Smith really understands how to work with clients in this region to deliver the right solutions.

Moving with the times

New ideas are fundamental to successful transport operators. Dave and Keryn constantly inject fresh thinking into the business of excavation and transportation, adopting and adapting ideas that add value for their loyal and ever-growing base of customers.

Family oriented and customer focused, Smiths Transport provide professional excavation, site preparation, bulk cartage and hauling services to North Auckland roading contractors, trades, developers and the general public. 

Our people drive our success

Safety First

Safety for their drivers, digger operators and everyone on and around all sites is paramount. They have safety practices in place so everybody knows where everyone and everything is on every job site at all times.

Their safety systems, which include effective emergency procedures and clear site access, are not only good practice, they are a legal requirement for everyone’s safety. As part of their social awareness and responsibility, Smiths Transport follow the law to the letter.

Smiths Transport are proud members of the National Road Carriers Association, New Zealand’s leading road transport association for transport operators.
