One can overlook regional centres and stocks that benefit from their growth when there is so much focus on East Coast capital cities. Small transportation companies that lug commodities – or people – in regional or remote areas rarely get much attention.
I considered the transport sector after returning from a week’s holiday in North Queensland. The airports seemed busier than usual and more trucks were on the roads than I’d seen in a while. Locals told me their economy was slowly improving, as mining picked up.
