Peter Keen

SMALL fleet owner Peter Keen runs Townsville-based Azkeen Industries, which operates eight trucks.

His company employs nine workers and the trucks can be seen delivering material, machinery and goods around North Queensland.

His favourite trucks to drive are a Kenworth T604 and a T358.

The roadhouse he frequents most on his travels is the Bohle Little Acre, north of Townsville, where we saw the 39-year-old Peter on October 2. "I come here all the time for breakfast," he said.

Peter is nicknamed "Keenie" in the industry and in what was a major coincidence, he saw another truckie with the same title in the roadhouse carpark.

It was Noel Keene we saw; everybody knows him as "Keenie" also.
