How it all began:

In 1984 Daya Moodley started a small landside logistics company, Shipping and General Transport Services in a tiny office, in a container depot south of Johannesburg. It is said ‘Never despise the day of small beginnings.’ Shipping & General Transport Services are a testament to that. We know the enormous value of small beginnings. Today his son, Regan Moodley directs Shipping and General Transport Services from the company’s very own container depot not too far from its humble beginnings. Regan commands a fleet of over 100 heavy commercial vehicles with the same passion and principles which his father founded the company on:

Trustworthiness. Reliability. Perseverance.

What we do

Originally established in 1984, the company set off to provide a local road transportation service to forwarders, importers and exporters at a time that coincided with South Africa’s entry into international containerised transportation. Client requirements and new market inclinations provided opportunities to progress into warehousing and long haulage to and from our country’s flagship Port of Durban and Johannesburg. Our privilege is our presence on the N3 corridor. Today, the company has evolved into a reputable one-call service provider of landside logistic services to amongst others, the South African clearing & forwarding, shipping, mining, energy, manufacturing, import & export markets.
