The Kargo Group of Companies was established in 1982 and specialises in Express Road Freight Distribution. The group consists of 4 companies all of which enable Kargo to provide our Customers with the service they require.

The Kargo footprint extends across the length and breadth of South Africa with the Head Office in Johannesburg and branches based in Cape Town, George, Bloemfontein, Durban, Port Elizabeth, East London, Limpopo and Nelspruit.


We strive to provide the highest standard of service satisfaction to our customers. We continue to ensure and maintain professional knowledge and skill, at a level required, to ensure our customers receive the advantage of a competent professional service based on up – to – date developments within the road freight industry.


The fleet consists of 350 vehicles, directly under the control of Kargo, carries out 95% of the company’s distribution. The remaining 5% is to smaller towns in country areas where it is more cost effective to use sub-contractors. Our aim is to eliminate the use of sub-contractors and achieve 100% distribution solely by the Kargo Group.

The Kargo Group remains one of the few privately owned Companies where Directors and Management all take a hands-on approach in the driving of the company.

All depots are fully fledged operational units manned by competent staff. Each depot has an administrative component of its own. These branches can answer customer queries with ease providing POD’s, rates and other information which is vital to the operation of our customer’s business.
The Kargo Group is a systems and information driven company. Ongoing investment in our ICT Infrastructure allows us to remain at the forefront of technology. The rapidly changing rate of Management Information Systems dictates that companies adapt and remain current with the latest Information Technology or run the risk of trailing behind.
Kargo operates vehicles ranging from a load capacity of 1 ton to 32 tons. These vehicles are fitted with a combination of curtain side and closed van load bodies. The versatility of the fleet provides both security and easy access loading nationally.
