Peter Smith began his long association with the transport industry by purchasing his first truck, a Bedford tray, in the early 1960s. Peter’s love of the industry led him to form Cubico, which was later sold to Mayne Nickless.
Specialized Container Transport was established in 1974, using National Rail rolling stock. Given an ultimatum by that organisation on changes to freight facilities, in 1995, SCT became the first private rail operator in Australia on the main interstate corridor between Melbourne and Perth.
This event altered the landscape of the Australian rail industry and turned SCT into a world class business.
Geoff joined the Adelaide branch of SCT when he was just 19 years old.
Gathering experience in other industry sectors, Geoff returned to the company to head up SCT’s property development arm. He also oversaw the development of our rail terminals in Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth, as well as the distribution centres for our major clients.
Since Geoff’s previous appointment of CEO in June 2003, SCT has experienced exceptional growth, designed and developed new age rolling stock, commenced operations in the Goulburn Valley, acquired a new locomotive fleet, and continued to expand its rail operations and corridors.
Charles joined SCT in June 1989 and is responsible for the financial management and reporting of the organisation.
