Social Responsibility

Capital Transport


At Capital Transport we want to do the best we can to minimise our environmental impact, as well as give back to the wider community where we can. Amongst our various initiatives, some of our more significant social responsibility and environmental programs are:

  • Our Victorian business supports the Windermere Foundation which started off as a ‘The Melbourne Orphanage’ operating out of Windermere Crescent in Brighton. Windermere is now a not-for-profit organisation supporting at risk children with programs such as the ‘Kids becoming Champions’ program which Capital has supported for over 20 years.
  • Our partnership with Greenfleet since 2007, which commenced with a $50,000 contribution to assist with offsetting the CO2 emissions of general business activity and Capital has been contributing annually ever since. The ongoing commitment to Greenfleet already includes the future planting of more than 21,000 trees within permanent native forests throughout Australia.
  • Our partnership with Bed Collect, whereby we recycle old mattresses that are no longer wanted when Capital delivers a new mattress on behalf of our clients. Every year Australians send in excess of one million mattresses to landfill. Over a four-year period in Victoria, Capital Transport has recycled 7,081 mattresses, saving 5,310 cubic metres of landfill (approximately 161 shipping containers).

Can you let us know what company you are working for and which area of the business you work in or which rotation you are currently in? 

Capital Transport, Contracts department

What was the first 6 months like?  What have you really enjoyed? 

The first 6 months was a very steep learning curve. It was amazing to see the difference between what I studied throughout my degree and how that translates into the transport industry. Throughout the first 6 months I developed skills in areas such as customer service, stakeholder management, use of transport allocating software, radio operating and even courier driving. My favorite part of this period was using the radios and allocating jobs all day like a video game.

Was your position with the Capital Transport Grad Programme as you expected it to be? Did anything take you by surprise?

Overall ,yes my position was as I expected. Lots of hands on training and changing departments quickly. I was surprised to see how helpful all the graduates were in each department despite being a trainee in each one.

Everyone is keen on maintaining work/life balance, with that in mind what is the longest day you have put it and have you worked weekends at all?

10 hours would have been the longest day I worked. I have never been forced to work a weekend. I have been offered and have asked to work weekends during some of the companies busy projects that carried onto the weekend.

On a day to day basis, what do you work on?

Allocating vehicles for pick up and delivery, Day to day client and subcontractor relations, Warehousing and admin tasks.

Have you worked on any projects at Capital Transport?

Day to day my main projects is vehicle routing and communications. During the year I was involved in some larger scale warehousing and distribution solution projects, as some large retailers relied heavily on transport throughout the Covid 19 pandemic.

What systems do you use for your role in the graduate programme?

Microsoft suite, in-house built transport allocating and booking softwares

What sort of support are you provided at Capital Transport?

My mangers have regularly checked in on me to see both how I’m doing and where I want to be in the further. Capital even provided me with support as I moved state by immediately introducing me to the other states team and involved me in discussion regarding potential positions I could fit into.

What skills do you think you need to succeed in your role and do they differ from what you envisioned?

Confidence, written and verbal communication skills and a willingness to adapt to change.

What are the best perks or benefits at Capital Transport?
