OUR VISION

To be recognised as the preferred partner in supply chain and transport logistics solutions, and rated as the leader in our selected specialised markets.

History

Cargo Carriers was established in 1956 by Desmond Bolton. His two sons, Murray (CEO) and Garth Bolton (Executive), now lead the company.

When Cargo Carriers listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange in 1987, the company was one of the largest privately owned transport operations in Southern Africa.

Our strategic focus shifted in 2002. Our vision was to become more than a reliable and efficient haulier, and we reinvented ourselves as a specialist logistics and supply chain service provider.

We have since created a service and value combination tailored to clients within those sectors that suit our unique capabilities and experience: Sugar, Steel, Powders, Fuel, Chemicals, Gas and Mining.

We also have a dedicated Supply Chain Solutions division offering a cost-effective trading business, and the supply and deployment of best-in-class logistics software and systems on both a consulting and implementation basis.

Today, our operations cover the entire SADC region, stretching from Cape Town in South Africa to the Democratic Republic of Congo.

OUR PROMISE

To deliver supply chain and transport logistics solutions that give our customers a competitive edge.
