Our great service, cost effectiveness, advanced monitoring systems, dedicated staff and value adding supply chain partners are what makes Crusader Logistics one step above the rest. Total transparency is key in our business as we believe there can be no partnership without open communication and honesty.

OUR HISTORY

Delivering excellence in transport since 2000. Founded in March 2000 Stuart Roos started Crusader Carriers as a brokerage. During 2003, the company was offered the opportunity to distribute paint and chemicals around the KwaZulu-Natal area and as far as East London.

During that time the core business changed from middleman brokerage to distribution, so it was decided that another business be formed separate from the brokerage arm. Crusader Logistics was established in early 2004 and sought new distribution prospects, this came in the way of National Plastic Manufacturers who gave Crusader Logistics the opportunity to deliver light but volumetric loads to its customers in Johannesburg.

In February 2009 Crusader Carriers and Logistics with the backing of its strong client base decided to merge to form one single entity. This was the dawn of a successful and thriving long haul transport company Crusader Logistics.

FLEET OPERATIONS

LINE-HAUL NETWORK

Mechanical horses coupled with a combination of trailer configurations to suit your individual requirements, our preferred brand for this requirement is Scania and Iveco. The entire line-haul fleet is on full maintenance contracts with the respective suppliers and each vehicle is retired from operations and therefore renewed after the mandatory 640 000km service time. This keeps our equipment updated and minimises unnecessary downtime.

REGIONAL DISTRIBUTION NETWORK

Nissan and Isuzu brands are used for this requirement, both have proved themselves in the transport industry over many years across many applications.

We also have a committed network of dedicated 3rd party service providers for when demand exceeds Crusader’s fleet capacity, our 3rd parties all go through a stringent vetting process which gives us confidence in the continuity of service levels.
