There are hundreds of trucking companies in Cape Town serving cargo freight needs for the Western Cape province and South Africa as a whole. Refrigerated trucking companies dominate the list given the need to move fresh farm produce and wine in the province.

There are currently some 560 wineries and 4 400 primary producers of vineyards in and around Cape Town. Transportation of wine between the wine estates and the Port of Cape Town requires a lot of trucks.

Cape Town hosts the second busiest port in South Africa, after Durban, which makes intermodal transportation big business in the city.

It handles the largest amount of fresh fruit and vegetables. The Port of Cape Town is located on a globally busy trade route, the Port of Cape Town holds a position of strategic and economic importance for South Africa. The port also serves as a transshipment destination.

As the second largest town in South Africa housing 4.801 million inhabitants, Cape Town has a massive demand for courier services that move goods locally. This makes it a good base for express delivery trucking companies for long-distance haulage to destinations across the country.
