Here at Fonterra Darfield, we have our own version of not Ice Road Truckers, but Milk Road Truckers. We have our own two female drivers.
This is Michelle’s first season driving for Fonterra Darfield taking after her father, Kevin Coffey, who has driven for Fonterra for around 15 years based at Clandeboye.
The picture of Michelle has her standing in front of her father’s old truck, which is now hers at Darfield. Michelle is also the first female driver to start at Darfield, beating Anya by a week.
Growing up with her father driving made Michelle want to follow in his footsteps. One of her dreams is to travel to the States and drive over there.
This is also the first season driving for Fonterra Darfield. She has a lot of experience driving flat decks, transporters, curtain siders doing line haul South Island and North Island.
Anya spent two seasons driving for Dunes carting milk for Fonterra. She has found everyone to be very friendly and helpful making her feel a real part of the team at Darfield.
She is very enthusiastic and glad to have variety in her shifts each day. We are very appy to have both Michelle and Anya as part of our team at Darfield.
