STOCKTRANS is major provider of cattle transport services to the Australian feedlot and meat processing industry.This company is a division of parent company JS transport group which is owned and operated by the sepos family near Newcastle in the Hunter Valley.
Stocktrans started its humble beginnings during 1988 at the north coast town of Grafton NSW .
The first unit was a second hand Mack
superliner and 2 deck cattle float which company founder Joe Sepos purchased at auction from Chinchilla in Queensland.This truck carried cattle from various NSW saleyards into Gilbertsons who at that time were the owners of the Grafton abattior. During the following 2-3 years the business had increased to 6 units with an office and workshop facility next to the railway line in south Grafton.
