Scholz transport services was established in 1997 with partners Dave and Eddie Scholz.Our humble beginnings began with just one truck and an idea to provide an overnight freight service for general and express freight at a sustainable rate.
We simply began knocking on doors of prospective customers in Whyalla, building one by one eventually needing to transport into other towns with a snow ball effect, this continued on with the same door to door attitude growing customer relations in all towns. As you would expect with growing pains this is not easy for any business as we needed to move to larger premises yearly and employ more people with each step.
With the growth over the years earning the trust of our customers, we are able to employ over 32 staff members and have many subcontractors servicing most of the towns west of Adelaide we currently have a fleet of 11 b/double- road train combinations and over 25 smaller vehicles for deliveries not including subcontractors.
Based in Whyalla South Australia it has given us the advantage of being central to most regional towns and mining areas west of the state.With the idea of growing slowly we have been able to gradually diversify and develop our business into other areas of the industry including refrigerated, over dimensional, warehousing and mine specific operations.Last year we expanded in to providing interstate on forwarding to our customers into most capital cities.
We have a 24hour call out diesel mechanic service starting in 2014 and believe this will complement our current transport service once again. This will be offered to all companies surrounding Whyalla that travel through and are based here. As our customers remain our strength we look forward to future growth in South Australia.
