New job vacancy at Unitrans Tanzania limited-Grader Operator

New job vacancy at Unitrans Tanzania limited-Grader Operator; Unitrans started as United Transport in 1962 after acquiring a family owned business, Thornton’s Transport which dated back to 1892. Since these humble beginnings our company has grown to be one of Africa’s most recognisable logistics and supply-chain brands. Now well over 100 years old, Unitrans Africa continues to grow and innovate.

The origins of the company date back to the 19th century, long before the existence of United Transport. The original core of the business was Thornton’s Transportation, a solid and respectable family transport business founded in 1892 by native Californian Samuel Thornton.

Thornton’s steady growth through the acquisition of other transport companies eventually resulted in a major buyout by the United Transportation Company. In turn, the United Transportation Company had started life as a bus operating company in the United Kingdom in 1930. The bus company evolved into a diversified freight and bus business which, prior to the Thornton acquisition and the entry into SA, successfully operated in several other African countries.

By the early 1970s in South Africa, United Transport had become the country’s largest road transport organisation, with capabilities and major interests in freight haulage, passenger transport, tourism, tanker services, as well as crane and plant hire. The group operated a fleet of some 1 400 buses and commercial vehicles, making it the second largest fleet in the country after the SA Railways. It had also branched out into a car hire business with some 900 vehicles.

In this year a major restructure of the business saw the creation of Unitrans Supply Chain Solutions. This response to sophisticated changes in the supply chain market saw the existing operations of Unitrans Freight, Fuel and Chemical, Agriculture and Mining Services and Roadway Logistics grouped under the new holding division. An important new function, Unitrans Customer Solution Development, was created to deliver new business to these operational divisions.

Unitrans Africa emerged as a focused Africa business in 2018. Following in depth evaluations of the ways of doing business in Africa, the shareholders thought it most appropriate to let the operations in Africa stand independently and be able to grow at an accelerated pace. Unitrans Africa has gone through a phase of re-alignment and is successfully building on its existing footprint in 9 countries.
