Remembering RFL

In News1 MinutesBy NZ Trucking magazineDecember 10, 2021

RFL an Innovative Kiwi Trucking Business is a new book celebrating the innovative Kiwi trucking company and its more than 50 years history. Written by a New Zealand trucking enthusiast, with contributions by the late George Potter and Graham Malaghan, who both had long, in-depth associations with the company, the book covers RFL’s entire story.

The story starts with the first refrigerated trucks in New Zealand and details the company’s growth in New Zealand, the entry of containers, and the expansion to and within Australia and South Africa. It explores the changes in ownership and celebrates the innovations developed along the way.

Many photos and stories of individuals add to the depth and detail.

RFL an Innovative Kiwi Trucking Business is available at for $55, including delivery. A $5 donation from each sale will be made to the Malaghan Institute of Medical Research in Wellington.
