WAYNE Hughes from Sheffield

WAYNE Hughes from Sheffield (left) and his offsider Craig Bye (right) from Bridport stopped for lunch and some mechanical adjustments at the Caltex "Mood Food" Truckstop at Kempton the other day. Wayne was driving a DeBruyn's Transport 2011 FM 460 Volvo, running on diesel/LNG fuel, and they were on their way from Port Huon back to Devonport with a tautliner loaded with fish food. Wayne tells us he has been with DeBruyn's for five years now, but has spent a total of 35 years all up on the road.
