Our History | ANC

Our History

A century of experience

The foundations of an exciting, electric future.

1921
Fleet Flyers was founded by Francis Edward Flight, who employed messengers on foot and bicycle to deliver theatre tickets in the Sydney City.

1961
The Taylor Group led by Hugh (Doc) Taylor, purchased Fleet Flyers. Throughout the 1980’s, the Taylor Group divested their broad hospitality and retail interest to focus entirely on transport.

Today (and tomorrow)

Proving our resilience, willingness to adapt and ability to innovate through more than 100 years in the transport business, today ANC are proud to be leaders in last mile.

And we’re just getting started.

Our road ahead is laser-focused on sustainable last mile delivery. See what excites us about our electric future, and what this means for clients like you.
