B-BBEE – Level 1 Contributor

Synergy Freight was recently audited by Integra Scores and achieved the following scores:

Ownership 27, Employment Equity 25, Preferential Procurement 25 and Socio-Economic Development 25, as a result of such, we are now rated as a LEVEL 1 CONTRIBUTOR TO B-BBEE and in addition is a “value-adding enterprise”. Our recognition procurement level is 168.75% and this means that for every R100.00 a client spend with Synergy, the client will be able to claim a procurement spend of R168.50.

Synergy Port Operations

Due to the growth in this area and continued support from our existing clients, we decided to introduce a name that is more appropriate in regards to the operation and services provided.

We are pleased to announce, effective 1 December 2010, the new division will be introduced as Synergy Port Operations which will concentrate on:

Ships Agency, Bulk loading and discharge of vessels, Project Cargo’s and Break bulk cargo.

Cape Town moved premises from the centre of the city to No 4 Foregate Square, Harbour Road, which is virtually on the harbour.

Johannesburg Office Turns 5
