The mining sector has in recent years come under increasing pressure to upgrade and enforce the most stringent safety measures. A culture has evolved in which the highest safety standards are a way of life in the mines.
With our origins in the mining sector, at Cargo Carriers we know this only too well. Our SHEQ (safety, health, environment and quality) scores are among the best in the industry, and our value-driven suite of logistics and supply chain solutions geared specifically to the mining industry simply cannot be beaten.

Ensuring the safety of all personnel on the mine is not enough. The suppliers and contractors that visit the mine every day are obliged to embrace the principles of safety, too.
Cargo Carriers is proud to be one of the top logistics service providers in terms of SHEQ scores, and has become the transporter of choice for a number of major players in the Mining sector.
Our Zambian subsidiary, BHL, has transport facilities at copper mines for whom it loads and transports copper concentrate from the mines to the smelters in trailers optimised for the product.
Our culture of excellence is driven by continual investments in training, together with an ongoing drive towards higher SHEQ scores. The training and development of our world-class bulk vehicle operators takes place at our multimillion-rand training facility in Sasolburg.
In the event of a road spill or a spillage at the loading or offloading point, a national agreement is in place with environmental clean-up specialists to handle such incidents, including containment, clean-up and rehabilitation.
By constantly renewing and regenerating our fleet we have decreased our fuel consumption, which means less downtime, maintenance and lower overall costs – the value of which is passed on to our clients.
Our new vehicles don’t just reduce the impact of fuel price increases, but also benefit the environment through lower emissions.
We embraced the quest to achieve the highest possible SHEQ (safety, health, environment and quality) and B-BBEE scores some years ago. Today, we continue to innovate new ways in which to improve service levels.
