New Zealand Truck & Driver magazine has in the past featured legends from our industry. 
"We now feel it's time to make this a monthly feature. There are so many people in our industry who have changed our industry for the better over the years and we want to recognise who they are," says publisher Trevor Woolston. 

"We aim to profile some of our industry's great characters and share their stories; we will discuss the good times and the bad, the battles of being involved in a transport business and just how much things have changed along the way. 

"We will talk about obstacles to success, the sacrifices, the rewards and some of the other great people we've met along the way.

"We are pleased to announce that Southpac has come onboard as the major sponsor of this monthly feature."

The first Southpac Trucks Legend is Jeff Mear – a member of a prominent NZ trailer building family. His story is on Page 68.
