The Truck Rental Company with a Difference
Daysworth International is not just another truck rental company. Unlike most truck rental companies, Daysworth international provides a complete portfolio of services for the heavy transport operator. Daysworth International began as a Truck power steering and servicing business in the late 1970’s. With a team of skilled mechanics and engineers, Daysworth International grew from servicing to include the re-manufacturing of trucks. From the early 1980’s Daysworth International expanded and began assembling Diamond Reo Giant Prime movers in our West Footscray workshop. During the same period company founder Ivan Vodanovich introduced terminal tractors and yard trucks into the Australian transport market. The sale of new trucks was coupled with substantial servicing, re-manufacturing services. The truck rental service was introduced as a complementing business.
The Truck Journey Continues
Daysworth International continued to grow throughout the 1990’s. High profile Australian, New Zealand and Pacific Island companies were amongst Daysworth’s customer, including the supply of Sisu Bollnas Terminal Tractors for Abel Tasman as pictured above.
Engineering Custom Trucks
As a truck engineering business with a difference, Daysworth International began building custom yard tractors for various applications. The HT180 featured in the video above was build for Toll Logistics specialist application. With a Mercedes diesel engine and specialized lifting fifth wheel the HT180 is the world’s most powerful yard truck with 180 tonne pulling capacity.
Daysworth International provides a full suite of services to support new truck and terminal tractors. Daysworth provides customers with Diamond Reo prime movers, 6×4 and 8×4 rigid trucks and yard trucks, to fully maintained service agreements, spare parts, truck re-manufacturing and operational capacity management truck rental fleet. Above all, Daysworth International prides itself as a reliable partner and expert truck equipment provider to the Australian transport industry.
