Moving Forward

Brothers Allan and Denis Price started in the transport business 27 years ago with a small truck carting the grocery load from FAL to the family supermarket in West Busselton .In time they progressed to a 5 tonne truck and trailer. More and more people started to use the boys for their transport and so Busselton Freight was formed in 1984.

The purchase of the first prime mover in 1992 and building of a freight depot in the light industrial area was a major expansion.

Over the years the company has moved ahead with the times which has resulted in different divisions within the company. Freight depots in both Busselton and Maddington which are approximately 5000 square metres each - The depot in Maddington also has a 600 pallet wine store and cold store facility. The implementation of the IGA contract has resulted in a 3rd Depot based at IGA Warehouse in Canning Vale.

The family company own the West Busselton Shopping Centre where they operate The West Busselton Newsagency and 24 hour fuel along with the West Busselton Post Office and Donnas Cafe. Six specialty stores are under leasehold. This facility also houses Busselton Fresh IGA.
