Humble Beginnings

Ted started trucking in the United Kingdom in 1968, with a tipper. His first contract was with the largest limestone quarry in the world, Foster Yeoman. Eventually Ted had up to ten articulated trucks running throughout the United Kingdom and the whole of Europe, driving one truck himself. In 1980 Ted emigrated to South Africa and started working for Swift Transport (International) in Harare, Zimbabwe as the Kwa – Zulu Natal manager.
