Delivering Innovation New Zealand Wide

Peter Dynes


Peter Dynes

Peter is a young and innovative leader, he is always thinking about the future and coming up with ways to be more efficient and to solve problems for his customers. He has been a driver of innovation using technology and has achieved significant growth by developing electronic systems to capture workflow. There is an iphone in every truck and all our drivers enter their work through the iphone.

Peter’s passion for transport began in his younger years of life, when at age 15 he was putting in long hours on the family farm. As soon as he gained his truck licence he began working full time driving.  He started out on night shift carting wood chips and logs, followed with driving curtain-siders and then when Fonterra first opened their Edendale factory in 1994 carting milk powder.

Peter took over the role of managing the business in 1997 from his parents, Jim and Anita Dynes, and has seen substantial growth of the business amidst significant change in the industry over the last 20 years. “The blue trucks have always been in my blood, at the age of 12, I would spend hours on a Saturday washing Dad’s truck, my reward was the 5 minutes driving it around the yard to the cleaning bay. It was a great way as a kid to understand and appreciate work ethic, I was bought up on hard work and I love that”.

Our business has a good foundation which has been built up over the past almost fifty years. As we look to the future our vision is to have systems, IT and people in place who will improve efficiencies, enabling us to provide the topmost service for our valued clients.”
