Stan Gaffney was stopped on the outskirts of Levin with a couple of workmates when Faye Lougher caught up with him. Driving a 2019 Mack Trident with a 12-speed mDRIVE, Stan had come from Tangimoana and was on his way to Peka Peka. He‘s been working for Clive Taylor for just over a year and his usual cargo is metal and aggregate. Stan was a mechanic in a former life and says he got into truck driving 20 or 30 years ago because he felt like a lifestyle change. “A change of job really. What I like most is not being stuck in an office or a workshop.” “A lack of skilled people being paid decent money” was what Stan – and many others we chat to – felt was the biggest issue in the industry today. Stan chose the airliner or cruise ship question and said as he‘d never been on a cruise liner, he‘d go for that.
