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:
On 07 October 2022, LCS and Bay Shipping celebrated the opening of our newly revived LCS Bayhead Road facility. We feel deeply humbled and thankful for Uncle Angus Buchan and Pastor Kevin Oellermann from Shalom Ministries, who joined the celebrations to bless the new facility.
Under the stewardship of Tokkie Pieterse, Justin Royal and Steve Larkins, the immediate focus is to button down the Bayhead Road operations in Durban and to return the site to its former glory.
We are thankful to God for this opportunity and His protection throughout our journey. We trust that this is just the beginning of many more successful years to come!
Early in 2021, LCS will acquire 100% of the shares of Yellow Jersey Logistics (YJL). This 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 18-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.
LCS 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, 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.
As a company we pride ourselves on being on the cutting edge in terms of the technology that we employ within our business, ranging from our fleet of vehicles to the processes and systems that we employ to manage our fleet.
We operate a state-of-the-art control room, with the requisite IT infrastructure, equipment and systems, from where all our operations are managed 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Our hands-on approach ensures that any issues that arise are dealt with immediately.
This control room is part of our standard service offering to all our clients, ensuring that our operations are always optimised and we also make real-time supply chain information available to customers, at their request.
Each vehicle in the LCS Fleet is assigned to an individual controller, with 24/7 monitoring.
The entire LCS Logistics fleet is fitted with iCab GPS based on-board monitoring systems and all LCS owned vehicles are fitted with iCab vehicle cameras, consisting of an in-cab camera, as well as a forward facing driver camera.
This enables us to manage all operations by the second and provides customers with total visibility of their supply chain in real time and enhanced security for their cargo.
