Talking Trucks

Getting You to Where You Want to Be

Driving professionalism in the Industry

The logistics supply chain relies entirely upon freight transportation in manufacturing and distributing wares worldwide. However it presents enormous challenges when a vast number of almost insurmountable difficulties affect not only environmental considerations but also those supporting some seven and a half billion inhabitants.

 

It is within this framework and hundreds more considerations [including competencies within the crucial Road Transport Sector] that drives this Talking Trucks initiative.

 

Four years in the making, Talking Trucks was set up to provide Road Freight Operators (RFOs) with a facility to source specialised on-demand, bona fide counselling, and advisory services in the fields of: Business excellence; Fleet; Transport and Operations management.

 

Our mission is to create awareness of the challenges in supplying safe, cost-effective, and efficient road freight services within the bounds of available resources and constraints, to a highly competitive and extremely challenging market.

 

    The 5 Principal Road Freight Components include:

 

    1.  LOAD

    2.  ROAD

    3.  TRUCK

    4.  DRIVER

    5.  SHARE HOLDERS/INVESTORS 

Although this may appear to be an over-simplification of a complex and challenging Carrier industry, one must appreciate that each of the five components has a myriad of variables that grow at an exponential rate when implemented in an ever-changing Trading Environment.

 

Our approach is to help road freight Operators [both Public and Private Carriers] appreciate their clients' concerns then relate these to their operation in order to identify possible conflicts within the five Road Freight Components.

Revive your strategy to avoid a business meltdown

There is little doubt that recent events have led to a lot of speculation over future investment in the road transport industry, especially here in South Africa, which up the stakes enormously given the country’s low growth projections, high unemployment and penurious community which situation could remain so for years to come.

At this point it is impossible to speculate on the outcome of these events in the short, medium, and longer terms. However, lockdown legislation and its longer effects on the macroeconomy could no doubt last for some considerable time and depress the demand for road transport especially while uncertainty plagues investor confidence.

With this in mind, we are pleased to now also offer short-term assignments providing Road Transport Operators with compelling strategies to closely monitor and fine tune profitability within Road Traffic Legislation and pending AARTO points penalty system, which although currently in confusion is bound to eventually be implemented and enforced by The Road Traffic Infringement Agency (RTIA) established in terms of the Administrative Adjudication of Road Traffic offences (AARTO) Act 46 of 1998.

In addition to these issues, we have now extended our services to assist business rescue with Technical and Operational assessments relating to  business recovery proposals.
