Our company was founded in 1959 and we have built a reputation of personal, efficient and reliable service over many many years. We are extremely proud of the trusted relationships we have formed with so many of our valued clients over the journey and understand the responsibility we play in the daily successes of their businesses and that their success is our success.
Our company has continued to grow from humble beginnings but we have never lost sight of what is most important – our clients – and here is what a few of them have to say about us:
Steve Shearing, Strategic Account Manager, ABB Australia
ABB Australia have been utilising Sykes Transport in Kewdale Western Australia for nearly 10 years, for the Transporting of various goods across Australia but in particular Oil filled Transformers ranging from 10kVA to 10000kVA.
ABB requires the Service provided by Sykes Transport to be an extension of “excellence” that the ABB product itself extends to our customers.
The Transport responsibility is a key for ABB to conclude existing contracts. In short there is no point in supplying a product if it does not arrive on time, safely and the sometime stringent requirements required during the Transport to be complied fully with.
The Owner/Operator David Sykes and his Team play a key communication role to ensure the professionalism that is expected is meet and often exceeded.
If you would like any further details please do not hesitate to contact the undersigned
Tony Miles, Regional Sales Manager, Sika Australia
During the last Four Years Sika Australia has been a major supplier to the Wheatstone Project. Our role has been to supply Concrete Admixtures in Bulk in a timely and safe manner.
We have used Sykes Transport exclusively for this project, their professionalism has been outstanding throughout. All orders have been fulfilled safely and in accordance to our clients guidelines. They have always been efficient and organized in any task we have passed on. We shall continue using Sykes Transport into the future.
I would have absolutely no hesitation recommending the Sykes Transport Team to any prospective clients.
Ged Styles, General Manager, toxfree
We have pleasure in confirming that we have been associated with Sykes Transport for over 10 years. In this time we have found the company to be excellent to deal with both as a supplier of services and as a customer.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Sykes to any other interested parties.
Kamol Sowattanaskul, General Manager, Chememan
Sykes Transport has been a major support for Chememan Australia since 2015 when the company started supplying Quicklime to mining sites surrounding the Kalgoorlie area. These sites require strict safety compliance and scheduling to which Sykes Transport has adhered to without any problem. Currently, approximately 50,000 tonnes of products per year are being supplied to multiple clients in Kalgoorlie area by utilizing Sykes Transport’s pneumatic tank trucks or freight trailers.
Flexibility and efficiency are some of the main key values that allows Sykes Transport to be able to juggle the demand of multiple mine sites with different operating procedures. All the while coordinating and managing our stocks in their DC and through intermodal activities. With the performance that Sykes Transport has shown so far, it is apparent that Sykes Transport has been a major contributing factor to Chememan Australia’s growth and success.
Mark Lindup, Key Account Manager, Wesfarmers LNG (WLNG)
In October 2010, Sykes Transport, in conjunction with WLNG, started the trial of a new LNG engine system produced by the American Power Group. This system is unique as it allows any existing truck to displace up to 50% of the diesel fuel with LNG, and reap the benefits of using LNG as a truck fuel. Sykes Transport was chosen to trial the new system, as it is a progressive transport company which is continuously seeking to improve its operations, and has the systems in place to objectively review the performance of the new system.
To date, the trial results have been promising, and WLNG hopes to roll the system out to the wider market in the near future.
Michael Webster, Site Manager, IXOM
Sykes transport offers a continuously improving service to the Ixom Corporation within Western Australia. They provide us with the ability to transport both multiple chemical types to a multitude of various mine sites and industrial locations.
They have never failed to provide both reliable service and quick, decisive action in times of need to correct any situation. The trucks, trailers and equipment they supply and use are always of a high-quality and nothing short of impressively functional.
The most dominant feature they provide which creates a severe sense of professionalism is their multitalented drivers; Each driver we have encountered comes to us fully trained ready to be versed in any induction or training method required and have always gone above and beyond to carry out the tasks assigned.
One thing we have always struggled to find in transporters is response time; There is nothing harder in this case than finding a carrier that values the urgency and seriousness of your needs and responds professionally, this is where Sykes has and continues to shine and why they are locked in as our permanent transportation provider.
I would highly recommend Sykes Transport to anyone in need of a professional and highly motivated group for transportation. They are as essential to us as our employees and have earned the utmost respect from us. We owe a great deal of our reputation and service to the skills of Sykes Transport and their fantastic coordinators, drivers and despatch staff.
