Faye Lougher didn‘t even have to leave home to do a Just Truckin‘ Around on Matthew Kinane, as he was delivering some new office furniture she‘d bought. Matthew was driving a 2018 Isuzu F-Series with an auto gearbox and had called ahead to ensure there was access for a truck at Faye‘s rural address. Like all good truckies, he backed up the steep drive just in case! Driving for Fliway Transport, Matthew spends his days delivering general freight between Palmerston North and Manakau, and was off to Levin for more deliveries. Matthew began his career in the transport industry as a truck painter, but says he had always harboured a desire to drive trucks for a living. He‘s been driving trucks for about 10 years now, and has been with Fliway for three.

“I enjoy meeting people on the road and the customers I deal with – and the driving of course.” The main problem Matthew saw in the industry was the fact operators don‘t always get paid what they are worth. Vexing question 50 was what super power he would choose. Matthew went for flying. “It would be cool to fly around the world up in the sky and not have to pay for petrol!”
