Grindrod Limited

To achieve “blue chip” status as a transportation group through sustained earnings growth from separately listed international shipping operation and South African based Trading, Freight and Financial Services businesses.

To provide a worldwide range of high quality shipping services through ownership, charter, pooling and operation of a diversified fleet of modern ships.

To be the first choice provider of a broad range of Trading, Freight and Financial services from a predominately Southern African base.

The purchase of Island View Shipping in 1999 gave the group a major dry bulk business, adding a significant new facet to the Group’s shipping services – Capesize and Panamax vessels were now on charter to compliment traditional business in the Handy size market.

IVS is currently South Africa’s most prominent bulk ship owner and operator, and continues to take delivery of ships contracted in the past at favorable rates.

Unicorn Shipping is South Africa’s largest and oldest national ship owner with roots dating back to the 1860’s. In addition to owning ships, Unicorn operates mainly in the chemical and product tanker markets and has a number of new buildings on order at favorable prices.

The group’s shipping services boast large, modern fleets, sound expertise, good customer bases and firm partnership relationships. Grindrod’s Freight Management operations encompass a major share of the local ships agency business, sea freight logistics and land freight logistics.

Grindrod’s Ships Agency is a leading player in its field offering many worldwide ship operators a broad spectrum of services in South Africa, Namibia, Mozambique, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Swaziland.

The Seafreight Logistics business, Ocean Africa Container Lines, in partnership with Safmarine, operated a feeder service around the Southern African coast.

The landbased operations are focused on terminals, intermodal solutions, rail, port operations and all facets of traditional logistics, i.e. international freight forwarding, contract logistics and specialized industry-solutions (automotive, projects, furniture, perishables).

Grindrod Limited is the holding company of a dynamic organization with more than 100 years experience in South Africa's freight movement and related industries, providing total logistics solutions for clients.
