About Booth's Transport Ltd
25 years up to 2019 Booth’s Transport has been operating for over 25 years and was founded by Graham Booth in the early 90s as an extension of his Manawatu farming operation. Graham’s sons Craig and Trevor Booth now operate the business which is still proudly headquartered in the Lower North Island distribution hub of Palmerston North. Booth’s Transport grew from a single truck operation in Palmerston North, to over 100 vehicles, a team of 200, and branches and storage facilities in Wellington, Mount Maunganui, Auckland, and an operational network spanning the North Island, along with significant inter-island services.
