AirRoad Group founder, Tim Paine, celebrated his 80th birthday this week and will step down from his position as Chairman.
He started the logistics company with a single depot in Sydney in 1989.
Today, AirRoad provides national road freight distribution, express and specialised transport and supply chain management services.
To bolster its delivery performance, the organisation has national offices in New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia.
It also has strategically located freight terminals in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Canberra and Townsville to deliver to metropolitan, regional and rural areas Australia-wide.
Going forward Paine will continue to serve on AirRoad’s Board of Directors.
Thanks for everything you have done Tim,” the company said in a statement. “We wish you all the best.”
Matahari Logistics Director, Ian Pemberton, praised Paine for being a true gentleman who built a passionate and successful business: “Congratulations on a well deserved retirement.”
Direct Freight Express Managing Director and founder, Joe Catania, wished Paine a long and healthy semi-retirement.
“You have built a beautiful business,” he said. “Congratulations to you and your team.”
