Rupert Smith – Director
Originally from New Zealand Rupert Smith’s family owned a livestock cartage business that then diversified into a nationwide refrigerated transport operation in 1995. Rupert moved across “the ditch” in 2005 when the opportunity arose to set up a new transport company both collecting and transferring bulk dairy products throughout Victoria. Rupert sold his interest in that company and joined Dave Murphy’s Edward River Haulage, which had also moved into the refrigerated transport industry under the wing of Mr Frank D’Agostino. In July 2011 ERH Transport started trading and continues to grow today.
