Loubser Transport, which focuses on the loading, handling and transportation of bulk materials and commodities within the agricultural and mining sectors, motor and construction industries and FMCG market, provides solutions to customers in South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
“We are proud to join a large, recognised global logistics business and a brand that moves business and industry through innovation, inspiration and foresight,” says Dirkie Loubser, Managing Director of Loubser Transport.
“Imperial Logistics’ Africa division, which has recently been created, together with our contribution to Imperial Logistics Transport and Warehousing under which we fall provides us with a synergistic Group within which we plan to expand our business,” he says.
Founded in 2001, today Loubser Transport operates 91 units and an established, expansive base of sub-contractors. Its scope of delivery is extensive and ranges from chrome, manganese and coal to tyres, glass, cement and agricultural lime, grains, as well as live stock.
“Loubser Transport gets the job done, and more. It effectively balances volume demand with the use of sub-contractors during peak periods. The team’s knowledge of transportation requirements, particularly from a cross border and agricultural sector perspective is strong,” concludes Thinus Erasmus, CEO of the Imperial Logistics Transport and Warehousing division.
