Warren Cocking and Lee Laidlow
WARREN Cocking and his partner Lee Laidlow run the transport business WNJ Cocking Transport Pty Ltd in Townsville.
Warren was born in Townsville in the working class suburb of Gulliver and has spent more than 35 years in the transport industry, working mostly in north and north-west Queensland running road trains, B-Doubles as a company driver and in later years an owner/driver.
Warren worked for TTS/UTO in the early 80s to the early 90s.
TTS transport purchased two International S-Lines, the first B-Double rated trucks in Townsville.
One was driven by Jan Almen and from time to time Warren. A Mack, Freightliner and Sterling Body Tipper make up the rest of Warren's fleet.
