Concargo forms abnormal heavy haulage company

June 9 - In South Africa, Concargo has formed a new company called Concargo Abnormal Heavy Haulage.

"We are experiencing a growing need for these services and therefore it made sense to start a separate entity which can focus on these specialised services," says David Kruyer, Concargo CEO.

Bev Lloyd has been appointed as the managing director of Concargo Abnormal Heavy Haulage, which is based in Pretoria. With more than 25 years experience within the freight industry, Bev will be responsible for over-border, out-of-gauge, abnormal heavy haulage and domestic freight, as well as rigging and mobile cranage on site.

Previously, Bev has been involved in projects such as the Katse Dam Project, Orapa 1 project in Botswana, Gorongosa-Caia Road establishment project in Mozambique, Road Establishments in Malawi. She also started operations for a freight company in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where she was involved from inception on projects that are still the focus in that region.

Projects the new company will be involved with include the facilitation of haulage and transport of material and plant equipment of predominantly mining projects in Zambia, Botswana and the DRC. Concargo provides a road haulage service into Angola, Uganda and Kenya, as well as into all SADC countries in Sub-Saharan Africa."With our reach and experience we are able to provide a cradle to grave service to our clients at the best possible rates," says Lloyd.

The company has also recently joined two additional international forwarding networks - Executive Forwarders Network - www.efnetwork.com and Global Project Logistics Network - http://www.gpln.net and will facilitate all heavy lift transport and overland, outsize cargo movements, mobile crane operations, rigging, machinery installation, and large scale project forwarding into South Africa on behalf of the respective networks' members. Concargo is already a member of The Heavy Lift Group - www.theheavyliftgroup.com and Concargo Sub-Saharan Africa in Zambia is a member of Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC) - www.wwpc.com
