TRANSPORT: Why it's King Of The Road
Recent Western Cape Business News
ESTABLISHED by Bernado King in 1932, Kings Express Freight has almost 80 years’ experience in the transport industry.
Handpicked teams of highly skilled drivers, operations and warehouse staff ensure goods are handled with kid gloves.
Behind the scenes, market leading IT modules, strict fleet refurbishment policies and decisions based on least environmental impact with customers and staff’s wellbeing are some important driving forces for the company.
A family owned business with branches in Cape Town (head office), Johannesburg, Durban and Port Elizabeth, Kings services over 500 clients.
The company partners with a number of outlying transporters who offer services to remote areas, thus offering a full spectrum of delivery radius, not confined to city centres.
These transporters are well screened and held to the same high standard that King delivers to its clients.
“The environment, our fleet and our staff are extremely important to us and are the chief consideration when implementing any decisions.”
“For this reason, we partner with Scania and Isuzu for a clean and clear conscience when it comes to purchasing new vehicles with lowest possible emissions.
In addition, our vehicles are traded in every three to four years to ensure they reflect the professional image of our company,” says director Wendy Goetze.
“Our staff too, are extremely important to us and we make full use of all training programmes available to us to encourage them to grow.
We are proud to have a number of staff who boast service records in excess of 25 years,” Goetze says.
Execution is also speed as, from a directorship level, a hands on management approach means no delay from decision to action.
Younger staff who joined in junior positions and through training and commitment have also become members of the management team.
