Divisional Director

Established in 2002, Namlog has grown into a leading supply chain group of companies, with operations in South Africa, Botswana, and Namibia. The group provides secure, on-time transportation of materials, parts and equipment direct to any destination in southern Africa. Hino has played an integral role in Namlog’s success, with Hino trucks traveling to diverse locations at all times of the day and over all sorts of roads.

“Over the years, our business strategy is to ensure we select vehicles carefully that are fit for purpose. Consequently, we migrated to Hino for specific application purposes. We’re extending our Hino fleet currently with extensive business growth,” says Namlog Managing Director Dirk Uys. “Hino trucks perform 13% better than the industry norm with best-in -class average fuel consumptions.”

“Hino trucks enable us to achieve consistent and reliable delivery times, says Namlog Divisional Director Louis Ungerer. “There are minimal repairs required between service intervals, and that is a key factor in why we select the Hino brand.”

Relationships with Hino are critical too. “It’s important for us to get the right fit and align ourselves with successful businesses and quality people,” explains Mr. Uys. “We develop solutions with the Hino team and they are an extension to our business. Hino East Rand and Toyota South Africa Motors are truly our valued business partners.”

“In addition to the physical vehicle, Hino has an extensive dealer network for after-sales support, which means we can get service in remote areas as well, minimizing delays in service intervals and downtime,” adds Mr. Ungerer.

Namlog is looking to broaden its reach and capture more of the market going forward. “We hope to expand the Namlog brand in conjunction with Hino,” explains Mr. Ungerer. “By doing so, we aim to become one of the major players in southern Africa.”
