Duo start own courier business

2010-10-01 00:00

TWO Pietermaritzburg professionals have teamed up to establish a new courier company, known as “Singasiza” or “We can help”.

Singasiza’s co-owners, Rogini James and Melanie Govender told The Witness that they established that there was a need for this service-orientated business in the city, adding that they have focused on providing a quality offering.

“Good quality service is the cornerstone of our business. It is a personalised service, transporting smaller items at first, particularly the express market.”

Govender and James are in the process of designing affordable packages to suit the needs of small businesses.

Singasiza operates a brokerage in the local and international markets.

James’ background is in the legal fraternity while Govender was previously a professional in the communications industry.

“Together with our vast wealth of administrative, supervisory and managerial skills we have decided to take a huge leap of faith and venture out on our own.”

Singasiza’s services include road, rail, sea and air solutions. The company provides overnight deliveries, express deliveries and budget cargo specialised services among other offerings.

James and Govender added that the new venture has been “challenging but rewarding”.
