DKN Transport was initially started in November 2004 with a single vehicle, by owner and operations director, Donnavan Naidoo. Since then the company has expanded, as an independent transport company. The company’s operations and marketing is managed under the full supervision of Mr Naidoo, together with a highly competent team of fleet and transport controllers. The governance, human resources and financial functions are overseen by Nevenka Naidoo, who joined the business in June 2015, with many years of corporate governance and management experience in the healthcare industry.
Until, 2014, DKN Transport was a reliable, competitive transport provider within the retail space, providing transport solutions to Makro and Hirsch’s Homestores. In July 2014, DKN Transport was sub-contracted to provide transport solutions locally and nationally for a leading parts and machines supplier. We have further expanded into the transportation of heavy earth moving machinery, used mostly in the mining sector, both nationally and cross border. Our client base has expanded, and our growth is largely attributed to our excellent track record and key performance indicators. Through our reputation, we have acquired a strong, loyal, client base, both locally and nationally. Our aim is to enable our clients to improve their operational effectiveness and create a sustainable and competitive advantage within each of their business environments.
