Quick Load Logistics started small in July 2013 from founder and director Etienne Wepener’s home in Cape Town – running overnight road vehicles between Cape Town and Johannesburg hubs every weekday evening, and working in mainly the Overnight Road Express (ONX) sector of the industry. This service offered a reliable, fast and comparably much more cost-effective means of delivery between these metro’s on a daily basis than Air Freight – and became a hit with many elated clients who appreciated the early arrival times and personal service when enquiring about the progress of their consignments.
With this focus on service centred around efficiency and personal service to each client, the company has kept growing: Both in terms of staff compliment, fleet size and premises. After a series of relocations to accommodate larger freight volumes in both Gauteng and Cape Town, our head office is currently situated in Stikland Industrial Bellville in the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town, with another in Jet Park, Johannesburg. We service both of these metropoles daily by way of a fleet of of well-maintained vehicles, as well as all other major centres and towns in South Africa via a network of tried and trusted logistic partners. Parcels and consignments are tracked and controlled via the operations office, using a tailor-made digitised system developed especially for this purpose.
At Quick Load, family matters: Several team members have been with the company since its inception, and both our General Manager/National Operations Manager and National Collections & Deliveries consultant are direct family members of Managing Director Etienne Wepener. Yes, even in the face of tremendous growth, Quick Load and its team members have been able to keep alive the original sense of camaraderie and the kind of team-centered operational policies that have made the company such a commendable force in the transport industry.
Today, Quick Load Logistics runs a well-oiled machine: Overnight vehicles daily, country routes, airfreight services, bulk and break-bulk vehicles to all of the centres within South Africa’s borders and beyond.
“ Thanks Wilco and the Quick Load team, the service is outstanding and we really rely on you, well done!” - Delia Cooney
"Quick Load is currently one of the best Couriers that I’ve been dealing with in my 11 years of logistics experience. Dedicated, reliable and familiar with our products that they are dispatching. Their Cape Town to Johannesburg route has never been a disappointment whenever they transport our goods, even breakdowns or road works don’t slow down their travelling times. They always on track and stick to their delivery times as scheduled. For the 4 years I am dealing with them not once I had a damaged parcel or a Lost parcel. Communication between Operational Managers, Admin staff, Drivers as well as general staff is impeccable. It’s always a pleasure to use them. Keep up the good work guys! I’ve been through almost 30 courier companies in Cape Town and no one comes close to your service delivery. You are doing a very good job and delivering a great service." - Sandra March
"We have been using Quick Load since their inception and have always received excellent service from all the staff. What immediately comes to mind is the big oil cooler of almost 600 kg that we had to airfreight to Johannesburg at 22H00 on a Friday night. Within an hour all the arrangements had been made, the cooler was at the airport and I had the reference number texted though to me. Because of service like this, we have been able to in turn, provide a professional service to our customers. I can without a doubt say that Quick Load Logistics has played a large part in our own businesses’ success and growth." - Kurt Liebenberg
