Waggie Pty Ltd is a family owned business. Our life in the transport & logistics industry started over 50 years ago by ‘William John’, affectionately known as ‘Billy B’ to all his trucking mates. ‘Billy B’, now passed, left many legacies behind, driving for some of the largest companies in Queensland including A.F. Palmer and J.G. Miller removals before starting up his own company B.F.L ( Burns Frieght Lines) providing general freight services.
'Billy B' always spoke about the time he carted bricks for the local police station in Southport, QLD. One police officer would the stop traffic so 'Billy B' could back his truck up. Sometime later 'Billy B' attended the police station to obtain his license & ran into the same police officer. 'Billy B' said that the police couldn’t believe he didn’t have a license & said he handled the driving of his trucks like a professional.
The office quickly gave 'Billy B' his license.
