Selection Cartage History

Primrose Transport is a third-generation family-owned business that proudly maintains a highly valued and strong culture and tradition.

In 1931, John van Niekerk, a diamond miner from Kimberly, established Primrose Transport. The first vehicle in the fleet was an old sleeve valve Willys Knight car that was transformed into a platform lorry.

John installed platform covers on this platform lorries, making him the first East Rand contractor to offer clients covered vans for greater protection of their cargo.
