The road freight industry, an essential part of the supply chain process, stimulates the economy by transporting goods to a final destination for sale or export. Statistics South Africa’s estimate of a total outsourced road freight payload of 566 million tons and an income of R90.88bn (circa 2017). Businesses in this industry range from large corporates to small family businesses and owner-driver operations.

The sector is characterised by the consolidation of logistics and transport companies and is dominated by highly sophisticated large companies that offer flexible and integrated end-to-end supply chain management and logistics solutions for a wide variety of commodities to a wide variety of customers. These companies use a network of fixed fleet, specialist operating companies, subsidiaries, accredited sub-contractors and joint venture partners.

Companies of a corporate scale may be structures with specialised divisions and rolling stock to service certain sectors of the market, or subcontract to such specialised operators in order to supplement their service offering, while smaller operators tend to invest for an as flexible service offering as possible to capture as much of the available market. Due to the attractiveness of the transport and logistics market with its low barrier to entry, many transport operators are available to service the market, given the current economic climate a degree of over supply may be expect in certain sectors.
