Download the Drake Collectibles App

 The Drake Group is excited to announce that Drake Collectibles now has a mobile app. This app has been in the works for a while, and is your one-stop shop for premium collectible items.

Every month we see our Australian-made trailers roll out the door, with very happy customers in tow. The feeling never gets old, no matter how many times we’ve worked with a customer.

The Drake Group has merged expertise under one roof

We’ve been revolutionising the transport industry for nearly 60 years. However over the past 10 years, our portfolio has expanded. In 2010, after considerable demand, we launched Drake Collectibles and in 2015 we merged forces with O’Phee Trailers – one of Australia’s leading manufacturers of state-of-the-art semi-trailers.

Leeson’s Logging & Cartage is a long-standing customer of Drake Trailers and our Customer in Focus for month. This time around they replaced their old axle low loader for a classy custom-built Quad Steering Widener. We here at Drake Trailers were very proud to see this trailer come to fruition, and we’re sure the team at Leesons Logging & Cartage are keen to put it straight to work.

Drake Group at Brisbane Truck Show

Last month, The Drake Group wrapped up another successful year at the Brisbane Truck Show – Australia’s premier event for the trucking and transport industry. It’s an event that gathers global interest, with more than 300 exhibitors and approximately 40,000 attendees pouring through the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre to view all the technology, engineering, and innovation the industry has to offer.

The dust is still settling on the 2017 Brisbane Truck Show. This year’s event was a huge success, not only for The Drake Group, but the entire transport and trucking industry. Innovation was on top the mind for many of the exhibitors showcasing their new products, with the event being marked as the turning point for the industry which has experience slow growth in recent years.

If you want to see just how good a Drake Trailer’s heavy haulage trailer is, you only need to look at what we are doing for Nationwide Transport Solutions.

2017 Brisbane Truck Show

In about two weeks, truck fanatics and transport professionals will descend on the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre to attend the 2017 Brisbane Truck Show. The event is in its 50th year and will pay tribute to the transport industries history before looking forward to its future.

Full Widener Rear Steer

Our Customer in Focus for this month is Darling Downs Haulage (DDH). Darling Downs Haulage is now the proud owners of a Drake Trailers Full Widener Rear Steer. This trailer comes with the famous Drake designed low profile gooseneck, heavy duty BPW axles, and hydraulic suspension for enhanced stability. Completed with a 2X4 Dolly, Darling Downs Haulage has a versatile and power combination on their hands, which no doubt will be put straight to work hauling machinery around Australia.

Low Boy low loader

From the country to the city, our trailers are rolling out the gate. We’ve delivered some real beauties lately to cater to two very different needs. A lowboy was put straight to work in Central Queensland while a Deck Widener was a new addition to the suburbs of Sydney.
