Domestic Air Freight services in Australia commenced in early 1960’s. Wards Express was one of the very first Australian Domestic Air Freight Companies. Originally services were airport to airport however Wards Express began delivery services to door in the early 1970’s. In the early years  Wards Express was called Lennox Air Freight. The name was changed in the mid 1960’s to Wards Express. Wards was established by Sidney Spencer Ward, born in 1914 Sidney Ward was the youngest of four children. People inside the company at the time remember Sid Ward as “The Phantom” because he could turn up anywhere at anytime!. Wards Express grew to employ over 3000 staff and operated in Australia and PNG, wards had 18 aircraft (mostly Lear jets).

The other significant air freight operator in the mid 70’s was Ansett Air Freight, in those days Ansett air freight was owned by Ansett Airlines and Ansett airlines was 50/50% owned by Sir Peter Abeles TNT Corporation and Rupert Murdoch’s  News Corporation. Ansett Air Freight was by far the biggest carrier of domestic overnight air freight in Australia.
