Cargo Carriers was established in 1956 by Desmond Bolton. His two sons, Garth (Executive) and Murray (former CEO 2013 > 2018, thereafter appointed as Non-Executive – March 2018) are involved in 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.
