  • 36% decrease in fuel cost per ton of product transported


Investment in infrastructure and technology



Invested R180m in fleet upgrades and new technology land trains at key mining contracts.


Improved efficiencies on cost/km, saving in fuel costs, increased margin, reduction of CO₂e emissions.


With the new technology land trains and controlled driving behaviour, significant savings on fuel usage was achieved. Fuel usage decreased by 36% per ton of product transported (compared to a standard road legal combination), which directly translates into CO₂e reductions. These savings are shared with customers, resulting in Unitrans Agriculture and Mining becoming a preferred long-term supplier with a proven ability to reduce costs.
