For the eleventh year running, All Purpose Transport has partnered with Foodbank Qld and Retail First Shopping Centres in support of the Foodbank Food Drive, which encourages the local community to donate food items to help feed families in need. Did you know that a quarter of families living in disadvantaged areas do not have enough food to feed their families? Every week in Queensland 100,000 people rely on food aid from Foodbank Queensland, with a third of those being children. From now until Christmas, donation boxes are located outside Coles, Woolworths or Aldi supermarkets in the participating centres encouraging customers to donate a couple of cans, a bag of pasta or a box of cereal – any non-perishable food items that could help a family in need.
October 23rd marks the one-year celebration with our every expanding customer, IKEA and partnership with CEVA. We are very proud of the road blocks we have overcome and team development we have seen over the year.
During the year we have fulfilled 40,658 home deliveries and 6,846 tones worth of stock to IKEA customers. Most importantly we have achieved these figures with zero workplace injury.

With many of our people touched by Cancer in some way, everyone participated enthusiastically in our fundraising for this great cause. With morning tea, raffles, lucky draws and yellow clothes / accessories for the day, it is such a fun and easy way to fundraise for the Cancer Council Queensland, it is an annual event at APT.
