What Makes Us Different

The Top 10 Reasons why you need to choose Hunter Express:


1. Our owners, executive team and senior management are all hands on in the business

Hunter Express is a large, very successful organisation and we believe one of the main reasons for that success is that the owners, executive team and senior management are all heavily involved in the operation of the business.  We have a “hands on” culture so its not unusual for the owners to take bookings, work on the dock and do deliveries during peak periods.  No other national carrier does this.


Having a flat management structure means the top people are very close to the staff at the coal face and this provides fantastic opportunities for decision makers to understand who the Hunter Express customers are, what there needs are, and how to meet them in practical ways.


We focus on the constant and never ending improvement of our business, which means we are a highly compelling alternative in the marketplace.  It also means we are more innovative in both the services we offer and the manner we deliver them.


We are a proactive carrier with high performance KPI’s

We are always proactive in our business, not reactive.  We will always update our customers when there are issues that might affect delivery. We pride ourselves on great communication.  In a service industry, things will go wrong from time to time, however we will always let you know if something does no go according to plan.


We also pride ourselves on consistently achieving an on time delivery performance target over 99%.


2. We are more flexible than our competitors, more personal and we care

We value our relationships with our customers; we will not treat you like a number.


We will be the first to tell you that we are not perfect. We will make mistakes and not all deliveries will run smoothly. This doesn't mean we don't care. We will do everything possible to ensure your experiences with us are rewarding.


Our people are some of the most experienced and dynamic in the industry. We attract drivers and staff who are passionate about delivering value for their customers. We love challenges and will rise to the occasion whenever possible.


We will always strive to exceed the expectations of our customers as we value our relationships with them.


We believe in the values of flexibility, determination, consistency, dependability and loyalty.
