About Concargo

A Brief History

Containerised Cargo cc was established in 1987 primarily to provide a part load, break-bulk and consolidated palletized load service to Commerce and Industry for cargo needing to be transported by road freight throughout Southern/Sub-Saharan/ Equatorial Africa.

There were a few name changes over time with the company name eventually settling on “Concargo”. The service offerings and deliverables also evolved from that of a purely general cargo service provider to the incorporation of other strategic road haulage services such as Abnormal Out-of-Gauge Extra Heavy Haulage, Mobile Crane & Rigging Services, Mission Critical Services, Warehousing & Distribution and Wine Storage & Handling.

Concargo’s transition to a non-asset based business happened when SA Breweries converted from a self contained fleet of trucks to a independent Owner Driver scheme, after which we decided to follow suit and changed our business model accordingly. Since then, we have operated on a semi-exclusive outsource base with a cherry-picked sub-contractor transporter base.

Concargo employs a staff compliment of industry professionals with the Head Office based at Airport City – Cape Town, Spartan – Johannesburg and Lusaka – Zambia, with e-marketing associate offices in the USA and UK, and is ably headed by the Chief Executive Officer, Dean Page.
