The History of PGA

PGA Group began life in 1969 as an interstate road transport service business known as CUBICO, specializing in the movement of high-volume, low-density products. Over more than 20 years, other transport and/or logistics businesses were developed and, in 1989, they were all grouped together as divisions of PGA (LOGISTICS) PTY LTD.
