On Tuesday evening this week, DACHSER South Africa was named the ‘Freight and Logistics Company of the Year’ at the 9th Transport Africa Awards 2016. The Transport Africa Awards are designed to recognise companies who have demonstrated an unparalleled ability to succeed and have continually set standards of excellence. The awards have become the blue chip mark of success for the African transport and infrastructure sector.
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.
E-commerce, the electronic trade of goods and services, is reshaping the world of logistics and forcing logistics providers to step up, says Detlev Duve, Managing Director of DACHSER South Africa. “E-commerce entrepreneurs require a logistics partner that understands this new dimension of logistics and can provide end-to-end services.”
On 25 February 2015, DACHSER South Africa celebrated the official launch and roof wetting of the company’s new head office, sales and logistics centre including an extended multi-user warehouse facility in Pomona, Kempton Park.


As technology continues to advance at a startling rate, logistics is perhaps one of the industries that must adapt the most quickly. If this seems surprising, consider that all the world’s most innovative products and services at some point require storage and transportation over great distances, within short time periods.
Detlev Duve, Managing Director of DACHSER South Africa, outlines the top logistics trends impacting the industry in 2016.
Insight gained from years of experience on the African continent has enabled DACHSER South Africa to develop and provide comprehensive logistics solutions that meet the challenges inherent in operating in this region.
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.
