“The performance and growth of the South African logistics industry are both inputs to and outflows from the performance and growth of the South African economy.”

– Dr Dirk Prinsloo, MD of specialist research firm, Urban Studies


Our current logistics reality

  • South Africa is ranked 33rd out of 160 countries for logistics performance.
  • New growth in ecommerce brings growth to the industry.
  • While important, automation isn’t necessarily the key to freight growth.

South Africa’s road to success

  • Since COVID, online purchases have increased by between 6% and 10% across products.
  • A reduction in bulk orders leads to a need for more agile staffing solutions.
  • Warehouse management must become more flexible in order to adapt.

The global logistics forecast

  • Lack of warehousing, sky-rocketing container rates, port congestion and trucker shortages are common challenges.
  • Vastly increased freight and logistics costs highlight need for agility.
  • Intelligent systems needed to improve savings and add flexibility.

We can safely state that South Africa’s logistics sector is the backbone of our country. We rely on this vast network of transportation to ensure food is adequality distributed, to transport petrol to your local garage, to keep shops and warehouses stocked while simultaneously securing jobs futures. Sound logistics ensure that South African exports are able to safely leave our country and generate profit in overseas markets. Competent logistics companies keep our country growing.

However, our country’s penchant for erratic fuel prices and unforeseen industrial action creates a volatile environment for the growth of this essential sector. Varying qualities of roads and infrastructure can hinder and cost logistics companies excessive amounts. Simultaneously, our drive for growth also welcomes the potential for an assortment of technologies. Self-driving cars, cloud-based systems and more have become future realities, leaving behind those who don’t embrace their potential.

This drive for growth demands a workforce of trained and skilled employees. As technology offers the opportunity to expand your business, it also requires a skilled staff contingent to manage its progress.


No matter if you require staff for your warehouse, distribution centre, or behind a steering wheel, we supply staffing solutions to companies across South Africa. Whether you need additional staff for your peak season or during industrial action, we can take care of all your staffing needs.
