At LiebenLogistics we focus on operational excellence and customer satisfaction.
Why Choose Us
The LiebenGroup grew out of a single-truck company called Liebentrans, founded on 24 November 1995 by Sakkie Liebenberg. Armed with an Honours degree in Transport Economics from the University of Stellenbosch and eight years of experience working for Mainline Carriers, Sakkie began his business with only a commitment from Kanhym that they would contract three secondary distribution vehicles to transport fresh meat from Cape Town to the Southern Cape.
The next 10 years would not be easy by any means, but by 2005 the Liebentrans fleet comprised 220 vehicles. The company was approached by a listed logistics group for an acquisition, and the majority shareholding was sold. In 2008, after challenging negotiations, the balance of the shares were sold and the entity in which the secondary fleets were operated were bought back. This entity was registered as LiebenLogistics, with a three-year restraint of trade in place.
When the restraint lapsed in 2011, LiebenLogistics re-entered the fresh meat market and today it has grown the fleet, and long-haul trucking and secondary distribution each represent 50% of the total LiebenLogistics business.
LiebenLogistics has a national infrastructure, with offices and depots in Cape Town, Port Elizabeth, East London, Durban, Pietermaritzburg and Johannesburg. All of our sites are equipped with maintenance, diesel and washbay facilities to give us full control over our key operational cost drivers. Our operations are mainly focused along the coastal areas of South Africa, where we have accumulated a wealth of operational experience. However, we are also positioned well, to swiftly implement new operations in any area of South Africa when it is required to do so.
