PBT’s History

Time spent with his father, Bill Baker, who was a partner in Wellington-based Kiwi Calltainers, inspired Peter Baker in 1972 to purchase a ‘64 Bedford truck and form Peter Baker Transport. Through hard work and a commitment to excellent service Peter grew the business by building a nationwide branch network and establishing associated businesses, including PBT Couriers (1994), PBT Bulk (1995) and PBT Logistics (2004). In 2005 PBT Group was formed in a move to bring all these businesses under the single banner. In 2017 PBT Group was sold, and in 2019 the PBT brand was refreshed to reflect its culture of Working Together and its position as NZ’s leading Express Freight Network.
