There’s a new name and a bold new look signalling the transformation of one of New Zealand’s largest and longest-established transport and logistics companies. 

That’s the story behind the unmissable blue, white, and orange MOVe Logistics livery that began appearing on NZ highways during the second half of 2021.

When Waikato brothers Vaughan and Grayson Laurent – and their wives, Dani and Larissa – started their trucking business, there was never any question about what the company colour was going to be.

The brothers – both qualified mechanics, but with a love of trucks – were just 28 (Vaughan) and 24 (Grayson) when they started Laurent Contractors…

They had no guaranteed work – and only enough money to buy a 14-year-old Foden Alpha. It was still in the red of origin... ...
