The company has grown over the years to now include a fleet of more than 5000 vehicles and a workforce of more than 22,000 people. The Linfox Group is today one of the largest logistics companies in Australia. From his original transporting venture, Fox has expanded his business to include warehousing operations, air freighting services, security services and property development.

He has earned a range of awards for his community work and contributions to the Australian logistics industry. These include being named as the Victorian Father of the Year in 1992 and as a Companion of the Order of Australia in 2008.
