A much needed article that gets straight to the heart of the matter: why black owned agencies are under represented. It would also be interesting to discuss WHY large agencies are typically owned / managed by white males in the first place. On another note, female owned companies are also largely under represented in agency land.
Hi Bongani. I participated in an external evaluation process recently andwhile the Directors were clearly keen to support a Black-owned agency, two of the four submissions which made the final cut included only expired IATA and ASATA certificates. The reference letters were also between 2 and 4 years old. It is imperative that only current/valid documents are submitted during the tender process and these are not difficult to obtain. Perhaps something you can share with the agencies you are in touch with?
This is an amazing article however its not just smaller black agencies that are experiencing this, I work for a small family business that is white owned and not only are we not given a fair chance with RFP's but we are also loosing smaller business just because of our BEE status. South Africa needs to step in to the light and base work given on a companies track record, capability and passion not on colour. Its about time that this country becomes truly equal.

Today, e-commerce revolves around everything and vice-versa. Consumers shop at their fingertips from the comfort of their homes or offices or even schools. With a dedicated and serious supply chain and storage warehouse setup, you can rest assured their your business is going to run smoothly for many more years to come.
It has indeed become a growing trend amongst both individuals and business owners alike to rent storage containers for various purposes. I personally have seen businesses like a container-themed restaurant and a container-themed motel recently and I was just amazed. I am still in awe with how much of an interesting idea these business-minded individuals could think of with an otherwise industrial accessory. I guess the rising trend of container-themed businesses plays a vital role too.
We are bound to witness fast growth within the logistics sector in every business district. The idea of strengtening one's supply chain and storage warehouse setup is to ensure that their deliveries will be in constant operation to prevent any downtime. This is the growing demand coming from end consumers themselves. Any failure to meet their expectations even by a small percentage could mean huge losses in terms of finances for their business.

I keep thinking the actual "Arr, me matey" pirates when you say that word, but of course I'm aware that there is actual piracy in the world where storage containers are raided from the shipping tankers. Even if they aren't wearing eye patches and wielding cutlasses! So it's a good thing that there are agencies dedicated to help eradicate that maritime problem!
