About Us

The company was first founded by Anwar and Sarah Ismail, the former having the technical expertise and the latter providing start-up finance for the business as well as access to the initial client base. Anwar is a diesel mechanic by trade and was inspired to transport while waiting for an overnight freight service, which never arrived. Being quite resilient he decided to hire a vehicle and transport his own goods across the country. He thoroughly enjoyed the experience and decided to continue to transport goods on an overnight basis and pretty soon his friends and neighbours also contracted his services, within a very short period news had spread about his excellent service and amazing value for money offer, he found his passion and continued transporting cargo all over the country expanding his single vehicle to over 70 distribution vehicles as well as 5 distribution facilities country wide.
