Buckeridge Transport Ltd was established in 1977 by the late Ian Buckeridge and wife Judith Buckeridge.

The company was based in Carterton and specialised in stock, fertiliser spreading and general cartage.

By 1983 the company moved into log and timber cartage working for various sawmills in the lower North Island.

In 1991 the company relocated to Dannevirke and diversified into logging and timber cartage over the entire North Island and in 1993 fertiliser and wood residue cartage began.

Simon Buckeridge purchased the company in 2005 and became Managing Director. Simon has since expanded the business from a fleet of five to ten units which in turn has increased its customer base and helped meet the demands required.
