Crane Livestock (CLT)

Crane Livestock Transport is a family owned and operated company.

We are ideally located in Naracoorte in the Limestone Coast region of South Australia, just down the road from  the Coonawarra wine district.

Rusty started the company over 21 years ago as a single operator. His work primarily was sourced from local farmers and stock agents. We are now preferred carriers for large corporations such as Teys Bros. & McBride Operations.

Over the years the fleet has grown substantially and now currently comprises of  7 x B/D sets of cattle crates, 5 x B/D sets of non-bruising custom designed convertible crates, a 48 foot convertible crate and one dolly for Road Train use. 

We are able to do Singles, B-Doubles, Road Trains and B-Triples whether it is sheep, cattle, alpacas, goats, deer or pigs, as long as the route is gazetted or permits are issued. 

We currently have 8 Kenworth T909 Prime Movers, one Kenworth K100 Prime Mover and 1 full time subcontractor. This enables us to continue to grow not only the business, but exceed our clients expectations of a professional and reliable livestock transport trucking company.

All our staff conduct themselves with complete professionalism, whether over the phone, droving or face to face with our valued clients.

The feedback we often receive from our clients or the general public is positive proof of their dedication and commitment to doing a great job, first time. They truly are assets to Crane Livestock Transport.

Having trouble getting to sales?

Rusty is a pilot and is more than willing (actually very happy) to fly you to any sales if time is an issue for you. Rusty will do up a quote for you as distance and number of passengers can vary the price considerably.
