RE: NOTICE OF SALE AND/OR POSSIBLE CEASING OF OPERATIONS


It is with a heavy heart and deep regret that I have to inform all staff, that we have taken a decision to cease our entire logistics operations within the Republic of South Africa (RSA). This is mainly due to the market conditions in the Road Freight Industry, the vandalism and damages we experience and the overall challenging South African economy.

There is a potential buyer, however, no confirmation has been forthcoming. In the event of the company being sold, we will consult all staff in terms of the transfer.

If no sale agreement is reached, we will cease operations effectively 30 April 2022. All statutory monies such as severance pay and National Bargaining Council for the Road Freight and Logistics Industry (NBCRFLI) entitlements will be paid to each employee.
