Take a trip back in time and take a look at these old Clinton Waipahi Holdings trucks.

This month we feature another company from the recently formed Road Transport Logistics group: Clinton Waipahi Holdings Limited.

Up until the mid-1990s, Waipahi Transport and Clinton Transport were separate entities which both had a long history in the South Otago region. In fact, they can trace their roots in transport back to the late 20s and early 50s respectively.

With a long history and close proximity of the Clinton and Waipahi townships, it was no surprise to see the two companies join forces in 1995 to become Clinton Waipahi Holdings Limited. Combined, they were still typical of a New Zealand rural transport company, however they also became heavily involved in the cartage of milk with the Dynes Transport connection (Dynes being major shareholders of the Road Transport Logistics Group).

This connection has also seen the fleet dominated by the Kenworth brand in recent years; however, in the past, the Mack brand, and European and Japanese trucks were also well represented. While a lot has evolved within this company over the years, the basis of the classic two-tone blue livery of Waipahi Transport remains largely unchanged to this day.
