WE RECENTLY caught up with Kerri Connors from Devonport, driving an eye catching 2016 FM Volvo 500hp with the i-shift fuel tanker for Caltas. She was on her way from Devonport to Launceston at the time, and said they always keep her happily busy.

She tells us she has been driving for Caltas for nearly nine years so far and "I am still loving it!! And I have been driving here in Tasmania for 11 years now and really enjoy that too!"

Kerri started driving in the army 20 years ago when she lived in Oakey in Queensland. It was a good start to a career driving, but she has fitted a lot into her life, including a stint with Toll and Linfox on the Mainland.

She moved to Tasmania 11 years ago and reckons it was the best move. She loves Tasmania with its amazing scenery and gentle climate. "I would like to give a shout out to the blokes I used to work with at Toll Girraween depot and Linfox Huntingwood."
