Dedicated from ground up
ROMA Transport Services' Danny Forbes and his team knows what it takes to run a successful business - because they started from the ground up.
The business manager for RTS might oversee a dedicated team that works in one of the Maranoa's premier transport companies, but there was a time when Mr Forbes was working from a cab rather than working in an office.
"I started out as a truck driver and it's been a natural progression for me moving up into this role," he said.
"I love what I do now, but some days you do miss being out there with only yourself.
"They are good, hard-working employees and great to work with."
While most of Roma Transport Services' business is in the oil and gas, Mr Forbes said they also transport for the agricultural sector and also offer crane hire.
"We are Australia-wide but we mainly focus on the Surat Basin region," he said.
"We're primarily a service company for the oil and gas industry, but anything that needs to be transported we can do.
"Whether it's shifting something like cotton or agricultural machinery, we can do transport basically anything."
Mr Forbes said the company also places a heavy emphasis on workplace health and safety.
"We're very safety-orientated and there's a lot more protocols and procedures in place that our employees have to follow," he said.
"Our number one priority is making sure everyone goes home happy and safe at the end of the week."
