Top Crop Carriers’ success is based on our strive towards on-time, honesty and efficiency in everything we pursue. Our fleet consists of Tautliner Links and Flatdecks with Goods In Transit insurance of R1 500 000 per load. Our vehicles are neat and clean at all times to ensure that our clients are proud to use us as the face of their business.
All our vehicles are under 24 hour surveillance and on-board cameras to ensure loads are loaded and offloaded on time, properly strapped and to keep the clients updated on the vehicles’ movements. The trucks (All Volvo) are in good condition and is maintained under a strict service plan to ensure minimum standing time and mechanical problems.
The depot is located 6 km outside Lutzville on the R363 in direction Vredendal, 100 meters off the tar road. We do transport across South Africa and Namibia. The warehouse includes a 100m2 office from where we operate.
Our fleet consit of:
- 14 x Volvo (440 and 520) with Superlink Tautliner Combination
Due to fluctuations and uncertainties about volumes and yield we will, from time to time, be necessitated to make use of subcontractors. Top Crop Carriers will have a strict contract with the subcontractor including general terms, conditions and we will have 100% control over the vehicle. Top Crop Carriers is very strict on who we use as subcontractors, and only proven reliable subcontractors with up to standard trucks and insurance are considered.

DRIVERS & DEVELOPMENT
Our operating system (Datatim) will notify us for any PDP (Public Drivers Permit), Licence (Truck, Trailer and Driver) and Passport renewals that need to be done.
NNR SIGNAGE REGULATIONS
Cover for Environmental Cleanup is stipulated in our GIT policy. The cover can be increased if needed.
LOAD CYCLE FREQUENCY
We do not have control over loading and offloading procedures, but we are more than willing to renegotiate rates if cycles can be done in less time.
Being a flexible company and due to the fact that we are willing to commit and grow in a long term relationship with our customers, we are able to enlarge our fleet if volumes increase constantly. In times of periodic increases it would be wise to make use of temporary third party contractors, who will be presented to the customer.
WAREHOUSE & HANDLING
The 2100 m2 warehouse on the premises is currently used to consolidate goods for transport as well as packaging of vegetables, which can easily be rerouted to one of our other warehouses on our farms.
We have years experience in stock rotation due to the fact that the food industry forces you to apply the first-in-first-out principal
