Founded in 1974, Lucerne Transport has grown into a powerful bulk liquid tanker transport company now under the banner of Unitrans Supply Chain Solutions (PTY) Ltd, a subsidiary of KAP Industrial Holdings.
We offer a top-class tanker logistics solution backed by a professional and dedicated team, with an extensive and continually growing fleet of trucks and configured tankers.
Lucerne Transport was founded as a family-run business in 1974, when JMJ Loubser began transporting milk from farms to his dairy. From there, Lucerne Transport has grown to become one of South Africa’s largest tanker transport companies.
As of September 2016, Lucerne Transport has become wholly owned by Unitrans Supply Chain Solutions (PTY) Ltd, a subsidiary of KAP Industrial Holdings Limited. This acquisition has opened a plethora of opportunities for the company, allowing Lucerne Transport to carry a wide variety of products across South Africa and into neighbouring countries.
We remain proud to provide all our clients – ranging from small entrepreneurial enterprises to large multinational corporations – with the personal service and attention to detail that has always set us apart.
No successful business is built without establishing and maintaining sturdy relationships with clients.
Whilst Lucerne Transport has achieved rapid growth in a short space of time, none of it would have been possible without a strong foundation – one built with the support and encouragement of our valued existing clientele.
We continue to offer unparalleled service, as our growing fleet offers you flexibility with a more frequent schedule and efficient service delivery times. Our highly-trained staff complement ensures that we maintain an efficient response time to any requests, continuing our outstanding on-time service record.
Some of the markets we serve include the following:
The principles that early management had on how the business should be run – “be thorough and do things right” – have set Lucerne Transport in good stead since the company’s inception.
Whilst the organisation may have evolved significantly since then, we have managed to uphold these principles and maintain our vision throughout our development.
