East Otago Transport

Our Story

Waikouaiti has a population of just over a thousand and is home to East Otago Transport. The East Otago Transport yard is situated on State Highway 1, just north of the main township. The yard is a hive of activity with a public weighbridge and several products available from garden and landscaping to stock transport, with five trucks running daily across the region.

The East Otago Transport, with it’s green and yellow design, is well-known in the Otago area, with the green and gold the local sports colours. The yellow swoop on the East Otago Transport trucks represents the bay of Waikouaiti Beach and the historical farm region of Matanaka, home to the countries oldest surviving farm buildings.

Kevin and Jodie Byrne are the owners of East Otago Transport, along with their other local businesses WAE, Southern Waterblasting and East Coast Couriers. Kevin is impressed at the depth of talent within the East Otago Transport team and WAE as a whole.

Nathan Butler is the Manager at East Otago Transport, Southern Waterblasting and East Coast Couriers. He is based out of the East Otago Transport yard and oversees the daily operation of staff. Nathan believes that quality gear brings quality staff and a professional approach to business that is noticed by clients and brings in more business.
