All About This Company

Aztec Forestry Transport Developments Ltd has a 100 plus-strong fleet made up of sub-contractrors.

The fleet is made up of a mix of American, European and Japanese trucks and around 50% of the fleet are five axle trailers. The weight configurations vary from the standard 45 ton units through to 54 ton permitted units.

Aztec came about as a result of three experienced owner operators joining forces to create a logging transport solution as key suppliers for Carter Holt Harvey's milling operations in the North Island of New Zealand.

The company has grown significantly since starting with just four trucks when it was formed in 1998. Today Aztec has more than a dozen large clients and its driver base continues to grow.


Garry Stewart - Operations (Central/Hauraki)

Garry rejoined Aztec as the Central Operations Manager in February 2018. Having previously worked in this role with Aztec for 9+ years, he returns with valuable industry knowledge and management skills. For the past 3 years Garry has worked in the Information Technology sector, so will be bringing this new skill set into the business.


Keiran Whittington - Transport Manager (Central/Hauraki)

Keiran Whittington, who joined Aztec in the Central region in 2015, comes from a log truck driver background. Keiran was the dispatch/planner for Aztec in the central/Hauraki region for just under 4 years before taking on the role of Transport Manager for the same region.

This gives him plenty of knowledge and experience to over see the dispatch operation.
Keiran can be found out in the field checking in with crews for roading issues and doing pre-opp hazard ID's when first starting a forest to get things correct from day one for the trucks.
This takes Keiran anywhere from South Auckland to the Central Plateau and from both coasts in between.
