A new partnership between Greyhound Freight and Stateline Freight means people can now send freight and parcels in and out of Tasmania to any one of the 7,200 towns and suburbs Greyhound delivers to Australia-wide everyday.
Greyhound Australia chief executive officer Robert Thomas said that Greyhound Freight would be offering a heavy discount, making it even more affordable for everyday freight.
“Companies and consumers can save up to 35% on the previous rates available through Greyhound. This has been achieved by dealing direct through Stateline Freight rather than multiple entities” Mr Thomas said.
“To illustrate these savings, where a standard or average parcel cost $85 yesterday to send between an address in Hobart to Sydney, from today the same parcel will cost $55. Similarly, yesterday it would cost $75 between Melbourne and Launceston, from today the price is $49.
Mr Thomas said this is the first time Greyhound has moved its operations across Bass Strait and it is looking forward to a long and prosperous partnership with Stateline Freight.
“We pride ourselves on taking other freight companies head on, saving money for our customers and providing a first class service,” he said.
Stateline Freight is one of the largest independent courier and transport services in Tasmania.
Greyhound Freight is a division of Greyhound Australia and has been delivering freight across the country as long as it has been transporting passengers.
