From the management to individual drivers we are all committed to treating your products or cargo with the utmost care and give you peace of mind concerning the transportation of your goods.

Our

Drivers

CAREFUL CARRIERS’ drivers are of an exceptionally high standard many of who have been with us for more than 20 years. They are not motivated by or monitored on the kilometers that are driven per month, but by the quality of the deliveries achieved. Some examples of the quality standards that CAREFUL CARRIERS observe are:

  • To mitigate against fatigue, driver kilometers are limited to well below the recognised standard in the transport industry, per month.
  • Strict guidelines are observed regarding the maximum number of hours that the driver is behind the wheel before resting.
  • Trips are meticulously planned to allow drivers ample time to reach a destination ensuring punctuality and avoiding the need to rush.
  • All drivers carry cell phones ensuring constant contact with our head office to fine tune delivery arrangements.
  • All vehicles are fitted with satellite tracking for maximum vehicle and product protection.
