A contract to distribute more than six million school books in Limpopo and the Northern Cape region has been awarded to Imperial Logistics group company Imperial Truck Rental, by the South African Post Office (SAPO).
Managing director Johnny Wright reveals that the contract will entail visiting some 5 000 schools in these regions.
Imperial Truck Rental’s competitive rates and ability to supply a large number of four and eight ton vans at short notice contributed to its success in winning this R5 million contract on an open tender, he states. “Another factor that led to the contract award is our unrivalled infrastructure, which includes 24/7 breakdown and technical service and support , provided by our own network of service centers and branches,’ Wright adds.
Imperial Truck Rental is providing a total of 70 vans to undertake these deliveries. The 35 eight ton and 35 four ton vehicles are all supplied with professional drivers.
