Bruce & Shona Robertson

West Otago Transport - The Robertson Family Bruce Robertson has diesel running through their veins and team up to be the heart of West Otago Transport, alongside their awesome crew of staff.

Bruce hails from the Pukerau area, where his family farm bordered the state highway allowing Bruce an easy option to feed his passion of trucks, by frequently hitching rides with local drivers in the big rigs driving past his gate. Legally not allowed to drive until he was 18 he qualified as a diesel mechanic, he then took up a driving position at Waipahi Transport. It was here Bruce was taught genuine hard working ethics and the importance of providing a top service to clients. Bruce worked his way up the ranks over the years, and has gained invaluable knowledge and experience of the transport industry. An opportunity to work at West Otago Transport arose in 1998 and now Bruce is Depot Manager and looks after Bulk Dispatch.

Shona, born and bred in Tapanui, left school to work in her families company, Dynes Transport for a "gap" year and ended up there for 13 years. Installed with strong work ethics and a "can do" attitude. Intrigued by the challenging transport industry that she grew up with, her passion saw her stay within the industry and she is Managing Director of RTL.
The family live in Tapanui with their two children, Sydney (14) and Tait (11).
