What’s Important To Us

Our family values run through the veins of the company. These are some of the things that matter most to us.
Family. Diversity. Innovation. Resilience. Dedication.


Family means a lot to us. That’s not just exclusive to the Arthur family, but also our family of employees and clients.

The business has provided a livelihood not only to generations of the Arthur family, but several thousand men, women and their families over the past 120 years of operation. There are generations of employee families who have been, and still remain, a part of our L.Arthur family.

The same can be said for our clients, some of whom have been with us from their inception.


We understand that a full service one-stop shop is the best way to support our client’s transport and logistical needs. It simplifies our client’s need to manage multiple providers.

We have strategically built our capability to provide diverse services to help meet end-to-end transport requirements.


Technical innovation and experimentation is in our DNA. We don’t get to be around for 120 years without the ability to innovate with changing needs.

We have sharpened our ability to operate the business at the leading edge of the industry in Australia.


We have faced the challenges of two World Wars and the Great Depression, along with many other bumps and bruises along the way. Our experience has shaped who we are today.

Our experience has given us the confidence that there are no hurdles we cannot overcome. And it is that experience that has enabled our capability to do any job.


Our forefather, Louis Dennis Arthur, was a hard man, but he was a fair and honest man, respected by his employees and customers alike. During the Great Depression of 1929, Louis was driven in his desire to protect the livelihood of all L.Arthur employees. He was dedicated to his ideal that “no person at L.Arthur was to lose their job” during that time.

It is that dedication that forms the backbone of a lasting relationship. For this reason, we have multi-generations of employees and clients who remain a part of our story.
