About COPE - A Brief History
COPE Sensitive Freight was founded in April 1989 with the sole purpose of providing a much needed specialised service to a select client, needing expert and professional handling of their sensitive equipment.
It all started from the homes of our managers. They contacted the people who had the need for such a service and asked them what they wanted from a sensitive freight carrier.
Armed with this information we went about purchasing purpose-built vehicles as well as specific handling equipment. At this time we also recruited operational personnel who had been involved in the handling of sensitive freight for a number of years. Most importantly these people were very experienced with what the customer needed and were very mindful of this in the handling of fragile and sensitive equipment.
Since then we have established COPE depots in all the capital cities around Australia, along with depots in Launceston, Port Macquarie, Cairns, Townsville, Albury and Newcastle. In conjunction with this we also established regular national linehaul links through the use of our own linehaul fleet. This meant that all our freight travelled with similar sensitive consignments and not with incompatible freight, which would invariably make sensitive equipment prone to damage.
Now we are Australia's largest independent specialist sensitive freight carrier, and would like to outline our services to you so we can be of assistance in the handling and distribution of your sensitive equipment.
