History

Booth Transport is a family owned company founded in 1936 by Lindsay Stanley Booth, who originally started the company to transport his own produce.

Devron & Brian Booth, who started with the company in 1957 and 1959 respectively took over the ownership of the company in 1968. The main freight carried in the early days and until 1964 was wine, grapes, grain and hay, within South Australia. In 1964 interstate operations were commenced carrying bulk wines to Sydney and Melbourne, with the introduction of general freight to the operations commencing in 1968.

By 1970 depots had been established in both of these locations and the fleet had grown to 20 trucks.

The wine division of United Transport was purchased in 1989 doubling the tanker fleet to 50, positioning Booth Transport as the largest wine carrier in the Australia, servicing all wine areas.

The general division covering the east coast and South Australia caters for a diverse range of cartage requirements from food-grade to hazardous goods. 

Devron Booth retired in June 2000, leaving Brian Booth as the sole director.

Brian's four sons remain in each branch giving the company a unique family orientation nation wide.
