Welcome to
Emerald Carrying Company

Pride. Care. Respect. Excellence.

Our trucks have proudly served the Queensland area for over 50 years, transferring General Freight, Bulk Liquids and fuel between Brisbane, Emerald and the Bowen Basin Mining District.

Our History

Emerald Carrying Company was established in 1965 in Emerald Queensland by Bill and Joan Haylock and remains today a family owned and operated Business. Managing Director, Greg Haylock and the Emerald Carrying team have extensive experience in Bulk Liquids Transport and General Freight.

Through the development of long-term strategic partnerships, Emerald carrying Co has expanded throughout Queensland, with depots in Townsville, Mackay, Gracemere, Emerald, Geebung and Lytton now servicing Mining, Commercial retail and agricultural customers. These partnerships have also seen Emerald Carrying Co grown to now operate a fleet in the order of 100 trucks from body trucks to triple and quad road trains.

Emerald Carrying Co has maintained a premier position in the transport industry and in doing so has developed a set of core values by which the company operates:

  • Pride, in our workplace, our culture and partnerships.
  • Care, for our staff, ensuring a safe and prosperous workplace and future.
  • Respect, fairness and integrity in our dealings, providing sustainable outcomes for all parties.
  • Excellence, in striving to achieve a safe working environment at all times, being innovative in our approach to problem solving whilst being aware of our social and environmental obligations.

Heath, Safety, Environment and Quality

Safety has always been paramount at Emerald Carrying Company. We provide all staff with appropriate health, safety and environmental policies, guidance material, documentation, procedures and training to ensure that our business meets its health, safety & environmental obligations and our target of ‘NIL HARM’.

All drivers are fully qualified and receive ongoing training, and each truck in our fleet is equipped with several safety systems to track driver fatigue. In addition, every driver holds relevant licences and permits for the loads they carry, including Dangerous Goods for Diesel, Petrol and Avgas.

To ensure our prime movers are reliable and safe, we follow strict maintenance routines. All our prime movers are fitted with ABS braking and are regularly serviced and tested by our onsite team of specialist mechanics.
