Logistics companies could be seen as the key service-providers within the retail and manufacturing supply chains across the world. As consumer demand increases, innovative products and services are being rapidly developed, and must be just as swiftly released into the market. This means that significantly more is required of logistics companies than a simple pick-up and drop-off. Logistics companies must understand product specifications, be cognizant of supply-and-demand, and pre-empt challenges inherent in storing and moving goods across geographical distances.

In recent years the South African Revenue Service (SARS) has embarked on a risk-based approach to managing and enforcing customs compliance, with the aim of being able to spend more time and resources in high-risk areas and on high-risk clients. For this approach to work, SARS has identified trusted SARS clients (importers and exporters) with the required systems and controls in place to ensure a high level of compliance. These trusted SARS clients have been given a preferred trader accreditation.
