The provision of road transport and logistics solutions between South Africa and neighboring Southern African countries such as Namibia, Zambia and
Botswana is greatly facilitated by services provided by the private sector. This is especially the case with specialised transport associated with mining operations in many of these countries. The success of large national and multinational mining companies in Southern Africa is heavily dependent on transport and logistics solutions for the provision of the consumables that keep the relevant mines running.
Experienced road transport operators, especially those that deliver a high quality, skilled, niche service are infrequently encountered. One such
company is HCR Ilanga Transport & Logistics (Mangethe Express Tours), which has almost twenty years experience
in transporting a variety of goods between South Africa and Namibia.
