Harvey Fresh Truck Unfit For The Road

« Back to News Articles Harvey Fresh Truck Unfit For The Road

While doing one of my regular check-ups at the Woolworths DC in Kewdale my attention was drawn to a noisy truck entering the Center.

The Harvey Fresh semi had obvious exhaust problems and a closer inspection revealed an exhaust pipe had been patched but was leaking.

The vehicle also had several tyres with inadequate tread and there was a lot of oil leaking from its engine and gearbox.

Other problems included damaged mud guards and a cracked windscreen.

Definitely a yellow sticker job and I filed a report, together with photographs with Woolworth’s DC management.

Woolworths got back to me with an assurance that they would be writing to Harvey Fresh to let them know we will be keeping an eye on the roadworthiness of their trucks.
