Imperial entered the South African logistics and transport market
in 1975 with a small fleet of lighter commercial vehicles, which
were principally rented to clients and utilised to distribute food
and fresh produce to restaurants.
Today, Imperial Logistics is the largest division in the Imperial
Group and involved in supply chain management activities in almost
every industry in Sub-Saharan Africa. It is home to 60 operating
companies; employs more than 11 000 people; operates approximately
5 000 heavy vehicles and has extensive warehousing facilities.
Activities are housed in three focused divisions, namely Transport
& Warehousing, Specialised Freight and Consumer Products. The
international division, Imperial Logistics International, extends
their reach beyond Africa. With headquarters in Germany, this division
offers ocean, air and overland transport, as well as professional
warehousing and distribution solutions to industrial clients, many
of whom are in the steel and automotive industries.
Companies that form part of this division include Panopa, Haniel
Reederei, Brouwer, JH Bachmann and Neska. Visit www.imperial-international.com
