Kempton Park-based transport company G&H Transport and Repairs has become the latest member of the Chemical and Allied Industries’ Association (CAIA) to sign the Responsible Care public commitment.

The company transports a diverse range of dangerous goods throughout South Africa, as well as across borders into all major Southern African Development Community countries. It also operates depots in Zambia and Zimbabwe.

It has a fleet comprising flatbed trailers, tankers and containers to accommodate the transport and delivery of the various products.

“The safety, health, environmental and quality performance of the logistical service providers that transport chemicals on behalf of the chemicals sector has to be of a high standard to ensure our products are transported safely.

“Responsible Care has to be extended along the logistics chain. It is, therefore, important that logistical service providers such as G&H Transport and Repairs adopt and implement the Responsible Care guiding principles and codes of practice,” says CAIA responsible care manager Louise Lindeque.

“Using our passion for transport, our commitment to our employee’s health and safety, our ongoing cognisance of our customers’ needs, our eco-awareness and our partnerships with companies who share our passion and commitment, we feel we are well on our way to living up to our company’s commitment to the Responsible Care principles, codes and practices,” says G&H CEO Jimmy Giannoccaro.
