Kings International is the new Probationer member of OMNI in South Africa. Steve Jordan interviewed Rolf Lamers, the company’s Managing Director in Cape Town, to find out a little more about the company’s past and present.
Kings Transport was originally formed in Cape Town in 1923 by ‘Old Man’ King, as Rolf affectionately refers to him. At the time the company had a horse and cart and was mainly involved in the moving of sand and commercial cargo in the local area. He subsequently left the business to his son, Juno, who many in the industry will remember well today.
