Our Story

Austrans is a trusted leader in the transport and logistics industry, providing premium intermodal transportation services and innovative supply chain solutions.

Businesses turn to Austrans for superior intermodal transport services and innovative supply chain solutions. We provide comprehensive point to point servicing across Australia, from metro to rural, with a complete range of fleet and equipment to satisfy every customer’s requirements. Our experience, know-how and commitment to service ensure we deliver reliable, safe and cost-effective solutions. We partner with our customers to provide tailored solutions that work for them.

Peter and Florence O’Shea founded Austrans as a family business in 1986. Having spent 15 years in the freight, transport, and logistics industry, Peter decided to start a company that prioritises customer service and goes above and beyond to get the job done. The O’Shea’s built a business that has survived and prospered through thick and thin.

From humble beginnings, the business has gone from strength to strength, securing large national and international brand clients along the way, focusing on the FMCG, Health and Pharmaceuticals, Food and Beverage, and Retail industries. Since those early days, Austrans has greatly expanded operations and now has offices and warehousing facilities in Melbourne, Perth, Sydney, Adelaide and Brisbane, with around 150 full-time employees across the country, servicing a range of industries.

Our mission is to provide the best possible service and experience to our customers. While the business has experienced tremendous growth, Austrans is proud to have retained a tight-knit culture that values its employees and fosters an excellent customer service culture. Our exemplary service and can-do spirit has energised the business from the start. It continues to drive Austrans to go above and beyond for its customers today and into the future.

Our mission is to provide the best possible service and experience to our customers. We started in 1989 as a small family-run business and are now one of Australia’s most trusted transport and logistics operators.

Along the way, we’ve worked hard to maintain a superior service ethic and a positive workplace culture that prioritises the needs of our customers and ensures the safety and wellbeing of our staff.

We aim to improve as individuals and as an organisation continually. The A-U-S-T-R-A-N-S values underwrite our culture.
