Steven Crawford (Manager & Owner)

Steven began his career in fuel transport with the purchase of the Pilbara Ampol distributorship in 1999 (later becoming Caltex branded). Growing the business and then through amalgamation and partnerships, the company “Link Energy” expanded to have depots in Port Hedland, Kalgoorlie, Esperance, Ravensthorpe, Albany, Katanning, and Perth becoming the largest Western Australian Caltex distributor at the time. In 2008 Steven sold his interest in Link Energy, and later purchased Maisey Haulage in Port Hedland to start Fuel Trans Australia. Growing the business from 15 tankers in 2008 to 142 in 2021.

Having had 20 years experience operating in the remote regions of WA and understanding the conditions gives us the competitive advantage to continually provide great service.–Steven Crawford
