Copy Southbound is a Podcast that covers all areas of the Trucking Industry in Australia. We have some amazing people as guests from the Australian Trucking Industry and get the real life stories of what they have experienced and been able to achieve in such a demanding but rewarding industry.
Today we sit with Peter Abood, son of Brian Abood of the iconic Aboods Transport from Northmead in Sydney. Well known for their fleet of Foden’s and Thorneycroft’s, Aboods were just as popular for their ingenuity as they were for their reputation as a fair, honest and hard working family. We hope you enjoy hearing the story of the commonly referred to ‘Gentlemen of the Highway’.
Robert (Bob) McMillan

He is proud of his time behind the wheel and a strong supporter of our transport heritage. This delightful interview with this humble and appreciative man is well worth the listen
Something different today as we talk to Dave Lynch, a sales rep for Mack Trucks. Dave started his career in the thriving bus and coach industry as a Detroit mechanic working with a Denning agent in Sydney. An avid GM fan, he spent many years driving coaches interstate before buying his own trucks and then moving into new truck sales. Enjoy a different perspective on transport in this episode
Chris Lyons of Lyons Transport Mittagong, was born and bred in the Southern Highlands Area and was raised by a father who did it incredibly tough carting marble out of Wombeyan Caves.
This very emotional interview about Chris’s late father shifts gears half way through to one hilarious account of Chris’s beginnings in transport through to his current tight knit operation. This is one that our sponsors will be proud of as this one-eyed Kenworth fan tells it how it is.
