The Transportation / Logistics industry is one of the largest and most diverse industries in South Africa. It is very important to communicate to your Clients the type of transport / logistics services that your Company provides. Therefore you need to decide on which service(s) you want to focus on. Below follows a summary of the opportunities existing in the two largest transport / logistics sectors:


Transportation of Goods:

These companies normally act as a third-party logistics provider for other businesses. They are firms that provide a ‘transportation service of goods’ – or sometimes they will take over all the supply chain management functions for a Client.

Here follows a few example of these type of companies: (1) Warehousing and Distribution; (2) Door-to-Door Couriers; (3) Local or Long Haul Trucking Services; (4) A mixture of the first three options.

Transportation of People:

If you want contracts / tenders to provide transportation of staff for other Companies, you need to provide quality and consistent door-to-door transportation.

Here follows a few examples of these type of transportation companies: (1) Shuttle service; (2) A metered taxi service; (3) Minibus taxi service; (4) Bus-type service; (5) Staff transportation service; (6) Courtesy bus service and (7) more.
