PRYDE, Craig

Craig Leslie Pryde has been in the transport all his life, starting out in 1985 with his own truck carting fruit out of Cobram working for his dad’s truck transport business, driving a red 1418 Benz.

In 1991 he started driving interstate for local transport companies until 1997 when his first daughter Kathryn was born. He then took a manager’s job with a fuel company where he learnt about the fuel industry.

In 2004 he decided to buy his own truck, at this stage he had married Bev in May 1998 and 2 more daughters had arrived: Sarah (1999) and Gabi (2002) hence the company name KSG ALLPRYDES.

He started off carting for Linfox until a friend that he had made gave him a tanker to get started in the fuel industry.

Since then the business has grown from strength to strength. He now has 8 prime movers towing 19 and 25 metre B-double tankers and 1 rigid for farm deliveries.

With 8 employees and 3 in the office Craig, Bev and eldest daughter Kathryn they have a great working relationship. The depot is situated near Numurkah in northern country Victoria. Craig continues to do more and more freight cartage work in the fuel industry.

In 2017 Craig bought his dream truck, a T409Sar the followed by a K200 Kenworth in the same year, he has a passion for Kenworths.

In between his busy schedule, Craig set out with a Holden which he did up as a rally car to join Kidzfix Rally of which he has been involved in for 5 years raising an amazing amount of $50,000.

This money has brought a Neonatal ambulance including the fitting out, also towards play grounds for hospitals etc… and much more to help kids in need.

Craig, with his wife Bev, are a very dedicated and compassionate couple and are a true asset to the transport industry achieving so much. Craig only just turning 50 in April this year, all is family, friends and transport associates could not be prouder of him.
