About Us

Milltrans was established in 1990 by J.J Stapelberg, trading as J+F Vervoer, focusing on the transport of maize across South Africa.

In 1997 the business expanded with the acquisition of additional trucks, also transporting scrap metals and containers. 

With the coming of the new Millennium the trading name changed to Milltrans (short for Millennium Transporter). Our single office in East London has grown over time to now also include offices in Port Elizabeth in 2002, Cape Town in 2005 and Johannesburg in 2007, ensuring a cross country and cross border footprint.

Milltrans continues to go from strength to strength, fuelled by the same passion of providing the best customer service and is destined to be the leader in the freight & container transport industry.


What Our Clients Say

Don't just take it from us, our clients have the last say

“I’m very impressed with Milltrans. I have never seen a company handle large volumes for such long periods of time and still maintain their excellent service level. I know I can call them at any time, day or night and they will be able to provide a solution.”

“We had no idea Milltrans would handle our small equipment move project. We see their trucks all over South Africa so we thought our project would be too small. They treated us like we were their best client and that’s really refreshing. I would recommend them to anyone.”

“Milltrans is an amazing operation to work with. They have handled our container transport needs for over 6 years and they have simply never let as down. No reason to look anywhere else.”

“Milltrans always goes above and beyond the expected level of service to handle our abnormal loads.”
