"Another milestone for Yellow Jersey Logistics. The last 15 years have been an absolute journey. I've been truly blessed by my Maker with good people, good suppliers, and exceptional clients." - Freek van Tonder
On 27 May 2021, LCS and YJL celebrated the recent acquisition of Yellow Jersey Logistics (YJL).
The new logo reflects the union of the two businesses, which share the same core values and culture, as well as the same approach towards service excellence and customer satisfaction!
The LCS Group is always looking to expand its service offering and diversify its customer base in the supply chain and logistics industry. To this end, We are very pleased to announce that LCS has recently concluded the acquisition of 100% of the shares of Yellow Jersey Logistics (YJL). This newly formed partnership positions both YJL and the LCS Group of companies, for exciting new developments and growth opportunities into the future!
The LCS Group has a 40-year track record, providing end-to-end supply chain services to its customers, predominantly within the bulk mining and minerals industry. Yellow Jersey Logistics on the other hand, has a proud 15-year track record, providing container transport solutions to the clearing and forwarding industry, specialising in general freight transport. This partnership sees the union of two great businesses, which share the same core values and culture, as well as the same approach towards service excellence and customer satisfaction.
We can state with confidence, that this acquisition will only positively influence LCS’s existing brand, its operations, its customer centric focus, and our commitment towards our employees and the communities where we operate. We believe that this collaboration will create new opportunities, built on the core strengths of both companies, and the economies of scale benefits that are on offer.
We would like to provide our customer base with the assurance that there will be no changes to the YJL management structure and operational teams, and that all parties are committed to a smooth transition.
We are excited by the prospects of adding YJL to the LCS Group and we look forward to embarking on this journey, the LCS Way!

The coronavirus pandemic is sending ripples around the world. How do we survive this time and even get something positive out of this?
Understandably so, many people are panicking about their livelihoods and the state of the world. However, the Bible gives us comfort in John 16:33: "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
The good news is that God is still in control and nothing that happens surprises Him. We can experience peace even as the world around us seems to be falling apart.
At this special time of year, our thoughts turn gratefully to those who have supported us at various levels across our business. Wishing you peace, joy and prosperity throughout this Festive Season and the coming year.
Thank you for your continued business support and the positive spirit of our partnership. We look forward to working with you in the years to come.

LCS recently celebrated the opening of its new 'Fuels' depot, on the R50 Modder East Orchards in Delmas.
The depot is aimed at strategically boosting security of fuel supply and strengthening its supply chain in the region.
Other LCS Fuels depots are situated in Heidelberg, Delmas, Hoopstad, Newcastle, Camperdown, Durban and Richards Bay, 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.
The new 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.
