The LCS business model and company values are based upon staying abreast of the latest developments and employing innovative ways and means to stay ahead of our competition. Here are a few examples of such developments:
The LCS Group of Companies is pleased to announce its acquisition of Prime Agri-Solutions in June 2019. This acquisition is a logical building block in the LCS Group's service offering as a diversified Supply Chain company.
Prime Agri-Solutions portfolio expands LCS's existing range of Logistics services, which it has been providing to its customer base in the bulk minerals industry for the past 13 years.
The company name changed to LCS Prime Agri (Pty) Ltd. LCS was able to retain the expertise of the Prime Agri-Solutions team, under the leadership of its General Manager, Frans du Toit.
LCS celebrated the opening of its 'Fuels' depot, on the R50 Modder East Orchards in Delmas.
The depot does not only serve as a truck stop and refuelling station, but will soon offers fleet support, 24 hours CCTV camera systems, client liaison and hands-on management.
Other LCS Fuels depots are situated in Heidelberg, Newcastle, Brits, Hoopstad, Klerksdorp, Richards Bay and Camperdown, procuring 50 ppm diesel from Caltex to ensure that quality is always maintained. All the depots are equipped with a fuel filtration system that helps monitor quality, impurities and presence of water in the diesel.Read more about LCS Fuels
