Trucking Industry Mourns Terry Nolan

April 10, 2014


The trucking industry is mourning the loss of Terry Nolan, who founded Nolan’s Interstate Transport in Queensland with his wife, Daphne Nolan.

Terry passed away yesterday morning and Transport Women Australia Chair Pam McMillan echoed the sentiments of the ATA Chair, Noelene Watson, saying the Nolan’s had been at the forefront of advancing safety and professionalism in the industry.

“Nolan’s is one of the largest family owned transport businesses in Queensland. It’s also one of the safest and most professional transport businesses in the state.”

“Terry was heavily involved in the development of better fatigue and work health and safety standards in the industry, including the ATA’s TruckSafe program.”

Terry and Daphne Nolan were the joint winners of the 2011 Outstanding Contribution to the Australian Trucking Industry Award .

“Everyone in the trucking industry knows the Nolan’s, and at this sad time, all our thoughts both personally and on behalf of Transport Women Australia, go out to Daph and the Family”, Pam said.

The funeral will be held at the Catholic Church in Gatton at 11am on Wednesday April 16, 2014.

Rest in Peace Terry.
