2. Long Term Vision

2.2 Developing a World Class Industry



2.2.1 Our vision is to develop a world-class industry based on seamless integration of all transport modes and multiple transport networks, which will grow in size, stimulate South Africa's economic growth and development, and facilitate trade whilst complying with international safety standards and delivering efficient, quality services to customers. Our industry will achieve a significant increase in black participation throughout the industry value chain. We will pursue a growth strategy that prioritises the retention and creation of quality jobs.


2.2.2 To make this vision a reality, will require a deliberate strategy to increase access to skills, capital and economic opportunities and, therefore raise the economic value added (or productivity) of every employee and enterprise in the industry. This will require all stakeholders to recruit new black people into the industry and increase their skills (and those of existing employees) to best-practice international levels, while creating a supportive culture for their talents to thrive. It will also require all stakeholders to facilitate the creation of new black entrepreneurs (and the development of existing ones) who can participate in economic opportunities throughout the logistics value chain.


2.2.3 We, the signatories to this document, believe that every company in South Africa should embrace Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) voluntarily, recognising that it is a social and economic imperative to secure a prosperous future for all our country's citizens and, therefore, a larger market in which to trade. We commit ourselves to embark on a major communications and marketing  campaign that will take this "Broad-Based BEE Sub-Sector Code for the F&C Industry" to every company to ensure maximum participation by all stakeholders.


2.2.4 Accordingly, all stakeholders commit themselves to this Sub-Sector Code agree to have their B-BBEE achievements (in terms of the indicators in the balanced scorecard) rated by an independent B-BBEE rating/verification company that is accredited by the relevant recognised body.


2.2.5 We commit ourselves to good corporate governance principles and the elimination of fronting in our industry. Accordingly, we will play an active role in instituting measures for monitoring, identifying and eradicating fronting.
