Critical Mass

Hunting for logistics solutions in challenging times

It has never been more critical to maintain the transport supply chains of Sub-Saharan Africa, with cargo and goods – which amount to mass – being of primary importance to the sustainable growth of Southern Africa’s critical economies. With crime, spiking operational costs and tax on the rise, are you fully protected and up-to-date with developments?

Delegates can expect special guest appearances from the stars of Big Rig Bounty Hunters on History Channel, Shawn Zimmerman and Vince Jones, all the way from Ohio, USA. They will be discussing what has made them the premier truck retrieval operators in North America, while passing on knowledge to the South African market during their visit and vice versa.

The likeable Americans will be joined by some of the finest minds and leaders from Southern African trucking, telematics, forensics, OEM manufacturing/assembly, fuel and supply chain risk management, which will take centre stage at this two day event at the splendid Spier Wine Farm in Stellenbosch on February 10 and 11.

Speakers and delegates will come together to discuss the rise of hijacking, truck recovery, tracking technology, OEM development in Southern Africa, road infrastructure, cost hikes, cross-border development, fuel and systems management.

The event will include an exhibition showcasing the companies that matter in the industry, and is set to be a regular date on the trucking and logistics calendar. Delegates can also expect live demonstrations from some of the experts to add a dramatic, practical element to the event, which will include hijacking, apprehension, rescue, surveillance, tracking, forensics, helicopter demonstration and corporate identity fraud.

Expect to see all the main players from the wide world of vehicle tracking through to the top OEM brass from Southern Africa’s proud manufacturing base and government, as 400 knowledgeable delegates are expected to descend on the Mother City.
