Linebooker, simplifying bulk mining transport in SA

*This content is brought to you by Linebooker

In South Africa, the mining industry relies heavily  on road freight as the primary mode of transportation due to insufficient investment in rail infrastructure. As a result, road freight has become the only viable solution for mines in South Africa, despite the high costs associated with this mode of transportation.

This is where Linebooker, the largest road freight platform in South Africa, can make a significant impact. With more than 18,500 trucks in its network, Linebooker can provide the capacity and flexibility that mining companies need to transport their products efficiently and cost-effectively. 

Procure and negotiate mining Tipper transport supply contracts in record time whilst saving more than 10% on your transport cost per ton. The Linebooker platform allows instant access to the largest network of trucks in Africa and a unique Bidding/E Tender solution to negotiate your 1 000 000-ton or 30 000-ton bulk transport supply contract live in 1 hour.
