Mapai Transport has grown from humble beginnings in 1987 with one truck and Jacob Luke’s desire to be the preferred transport operator on the Highlands Highway.
Today the fleet has grown to more than 80 prime movers transporting all sorts of cargo from food commodities to highly dangerous chemicals needed in the mining sector.
The Mapai fleet is made up of the ever reliable and proven Kenworth prime movers and are backed by trailers specifically designed to withstand the rigors of the unique conditions of the Highlands Highway including fuel tankers and widening floats for over dimensional loads.
MAPAI TRANSPORT LTD
Mapai Transport has a dedicated recovery fleet to support its operations on the highway to promptly attend to any incidents, providing Mapai the ability to transport our customers’ cargo to its destinations with the least amount of disruption as possible.
