First Freight Couriers was incorporated in 1996. The founding members have a clear and in-depth knowledge of the courier industry, and have extensive backgrounds within the Courier Industry. The reason for forming another courier company was the lack of personalised services being offered to customers, as well as the lack of information provided to customers. The Directors felt that First Freight would fit into a niche market, and formed a company that not only offers a superior service, but one that will also focus on the individual needs of the customer.
In 2000 DNA supply chain Management purchased 65 % of First Freight Couriers, in order for the management of First Freight to gain knowledge and expand into the Supply Chain Services market. DNA felt that their focus did not lie in the courier market and they felt the need for a distribution arm of their business - which resulted in the inception of DNA First Freight Pty Ltd.
On the 1st of October 2001, First Freight Couriers was once again a privately owned business. The original Directors of First Freight Couriers, approached DNA Supply Chain Management to buy back the 65 % shares, as the markets were too diverse to integrate the business successfully.
On the 1st of March 2002 Loads Direct was established. Loads Direct (Pty) Ltd is a separate entity which operates under the First Freight Couriers (Pty) Ltd banner, hence extending our diversity in the market place. This is a common ideology which is to strive to continuously add value to our clients. We found a niche in the market that requires various direct loads for customers. This service enables us to collect from the customer and deliver to the consignee as a dedicated load.
Since 2002, the company has grown from strength to strength. The two founding Directors are still personally involved in the day to day running and management of the company, and are constantly striving to come up with new innovative ideas to take First Freight Couriers to an even higher level, enabling us to offer our customers a superior level of service. All the managers adopt a hands-on approach, and the philosophy of the business is "paying attention to detail." The Directors and Managers are continually looking for ways to adapt the business, the pricing structures and the services to suit the Customers individual needs. The First Freight Courier staff are all committed to offering our Customers the best possible service.
