Leaders in Innovation

Cavanaghs Stockmaster maintains a strong focus on innovative technology, benefiting the company and its clients by increasing the efficiency and traceability of each head of stock.

Cavanaghs Stockmaster is the only livestock transport company with in-house logistics and invoicing software, TransFocus. Within this system we are able to enter new jobs, assign a driver, track the progress of the job and provide same day invoicing to our clients. Our clients can also access the portal to track their deliveries, ensuring clarity and transparency throughout the entire job.

We were proud to be one of the first in Australia to install EBS across the entire fleet in 2012. The innovative action taken by the company was a result of extensive research and an internal review of the benefits provided for overall safety of the fleet.

Staff Safety

To ensure the utmost safety of our staff, Cavanaghs Stockmaster has installed Guardian Seeing Eye Machines and tracking devices throughout the entire fleet. The software uses proprietary face and eye tracking algorithms to detect whether a driver is fatigued or distracted, providing real-time in-cab intervention to warn the driver to refocus their attention on the road.
