FFS own and operate a fleet of over 50 long distance road tankers and a further 20 short distance vehicles for the collection and delivery of fuel oils.
The Company strategy is to move approximately 70% of our raw materials and products and only a small percentage is moved by contractors. This gives us greater flexibility and control over scheduling and provides improved security of supply.
Our vehicles operate out of five different centres across South Africa providing national coverage. We also run four vehicle maintenance workshops to keep our rigs in exceptional working order.
FFS is a SABS-registered tanker manufacturer, building to SANS 1518:2008. As such our vehicles comply with international standards of design and safety. Each tanker is purpose designed for the product to be transported to ensure maximum cost effectiveness and trouble-free operation.
For example FFS have designed and built tankers for the transportation of coal tar with a high solid content. These units were designed with internal screw conveyors to enable the material to be fully unloaded without blockage when settlement occurs.
