Happy Birthday Josie’s
Josie’s Transport has turned 40 this month and we’d like to thank our loyal customers for helping us evolve into Geelong’s leading courier service for businesses big and small.
The company has come a long way since Josie and Fred Runia started the business from the sunroom of their family home in Lara in 1974. Josie died more than nine years ago but the business she built from that first `office’ – with an ironing board and card table as desks, four female contractors and a driving passion to succeed – has become a courier and freight transport icon.
When the messenger company Josie used to work for closed its Geelong branch more than four decades ago, leaving her and her colleagues out of a job, the determined woman decided to start her own business with husband Fred. Josie’s the messenger service was born and the business was on its way.
Since those humble beginnings, we’ve grown into a courier and transport service with more than 2000 clients in location including Geelong, Melbourne, Ballarat and the Western District. We might be bigger, but our commitment to providing a professional, prompt, reliable value-for-money service for our clients remains just as strong.
And, as we celebrate our 40th birthday, we want to say `thank you’ to all our clients from those who supported us as a new company right up to our current customers. That loyalty shown to us by hundreds of Geelong clients over the past four decades has helped us grow into the proud company we are today.
While our range of services and routes has increased, we are still passionate about our role as Geelong’s premier courier service provider. If you are looking for a courier in Geelong, please contact us to ask about our same-day service including Rocket, Special and Standard options.
