Gates Haulage is a family owned business, operating out of Gerringong on the NSW South Coast, contributing to the local community for over 40 years.
Gates Haulage has serviced many industries over the past four decades, shifting focus to suit the changing needs of customers in the Illawarra region of New South Wales. Based in Gerringong, just south of Kiama, this family business started like many others – with one truck and two brothers.
1971: Gates Haulage began in 1971, but brothers, Bryan and Stan Gates began working together years earlier.
1980: Bryan and Stan bought a yard in Gerringong and established Gates Haulage. Bryan’s home was on the property and the office barely one hundred yards from the back door. It stayed this way until a year ago, when the business moved across the street.
2001- 2015: Bryan’s son, Paul came into the business 18 years ago and oversees logistics; and while Stan has retired, his son, Stephen came into the business five years ago and now manages compliance.
Today: Gates Haulage employs 50 staff, runs a fleet of 50 company trucks and more than 150 types of plant and equipment.
