When Wayne Kenworthy began driving back in 1984 as part of the family business, Cyril Kenworthy & Sons Ltd, he probably never envisioned driving a truck with a 750-horsepower engine.

Wayne and his wife Janine have since started their own company called Kenworthy Transport Services, starting 15 years ago at Hall’s Refrigerated Transport with a Kenworth T404 doing a Picton swap.
