African Secure Truck Parking Organisation was established to provide independent certification and accreditation of safe and secure truck parking relating to existing truck stops in accordance with international standards, which have been adapted for African conditions. With the growing criminal activities around high value goods consignments, manufacturers are increasingly seeking more and more certified and accredited safe and secure parking facilities, which ASTPORG will be able to certify and accredit in Africa.

Load Control Operations

In 2007, a Joint Venture was formed between Zimele and Trans African Concessions (Pty) Ltd (TRAC), where both companies played an equal role in establishing LCO – JV. Over a period of seven years, Zimele skilled up and acquired all the necessary resources and technical knowhow within itself to be able to operate and manage large and complex Traffic Control Centre (Weighbridge) contracts such as the Beitbridge, Polokwane and Zebediela Weighbridges, which the LCO-JV operated very successfully.
