Haulage heavyweight

QUEENSLAND-based heavy haulage specialist Mactrans Heavy Haulage has just taken delivery of another new state-of-the-art specialised Drake trailer as a further commitment to supporting Australia's expanding infrastructure and mining industry.

Mactrans operations manager Ross Dunne said he was pleased with the delivery.
