Africa Transport Solutions (ATS) is a dynamic, privately owned transport operator based in Somerset West. The company’s day-to-day management is handled by Joint owners Jaco Conradie and Johnny Bosch. With more than 19 years combined experience in transporting freight for the industrial and agricultural sectors, our top management team is well equipped and committed to deliver value, quality and personal attention.
ATS renders transport services throughout South and Southern Africa, including Botswana, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe. However… we offer more than transport.
Our services include:
At ATS we know that no cargo is ever the same, therefore we design solutions that address clients' specific requirements. Efficient communication with clients is our key to service excellence.
Africa Transport Solutions, an Organization that transport services throughout Southern Africa, expresses a concern for Health, Safety and the Environment and regards it as an integral part of its business conduct. To assist with this Africa Transport Solutions has adopted the guidelines of the internationally recognised Health and Safety Management System, OHSAS 18001 and the Environmental Management System ISO 14001. Africa Transport Solutions requires from its personnel to exercise personal responsibility and a commitment to safe working practices, healthy working conditions and to care for the environment in which they operate by applying Africa Transport Solutions workplace policies and procedures.
Our vehicles are purposely selected and equipped to ensure the careful handling of our clients’ cargoes. The ATS fleet includes super links, taut liners and tri-axle trucks, all of which are equipped with tarpaulins, straps and corner plates. We have excellent preventative maintenance strategies in order to be proactive on maintenance on our equipment.
The moment a load is assigned to ATS, a load number is allocated and all relevant data captured on our database. Thereafter, its progress is tracked by means of continues satellite surveillance and frequent cell phone communication to ensure its punctual delivery. ATS keeps clients informed of the progress of dispatched loads by means of daily reports to their logistics departments and, at the end, proof of delivery.
Because of general fluctuation in future, the SA Road Freight Association has developed a formula for factoring of diesel prices on total costing, i.e. New price less old price divide by old price multiplied by 50% x100 = % increase on negotiated base rate.
Africa Transport Solutions subscribes to the above costing of diesel price increases, as it offers the following advantages:
There are more than half a million collisions per year on South African roads and your chance of being involved in one, is extremely high. We have structured our defensive driver training course specifically to equip drivers with the necessary attitude, awareness and physical skills so that they can avoid potentially life threatening situations. Defensive driving is much more than just an attitude. It is a responsible way of thinking and reacting on the road. It is a frame of mind in which we ensure that we drive with the highest degree of skill, safety and consideration for other road users. What distinguish good drivers from others? It is the ability to maintain the required levels of concentration and to anticipate and assess what others are doing. Subsequently the good driver must then be able to respond to such potential hazards continuously over a long period. Defensive driver training raises the level of a driver's overall effectiveness by increasing awareness and by placing more knowledge at a driver's disposal. For that we are sharpening skills of observation, perception and forward planning. This has benefited our business in ways which monetary value cannot be measured.
