Established in 1995 by Sakkie Liebenberg, LiebenLogistics has grown from an enterprise with only one vehicle, into one of the blue-chip leaders in the industry. Today we boast a fleet of more than 400 vehicles, and service clients throughout South Africa, as well as in some of its neighbouring countries.

In 2012, LiebenLogistics acquired the majority shareholding in GLS Supply Chain Equipment. The company focuses on the design, manufacturing and management of supply chain equipment such as hypercages, rolltainers, tote boxes and the like – returnable packaging solutions and equipment used to store and move products through varying supply chains.

In 2012 these companies combined forces to create the formidable LiebenGroup.

The latest addition to the stable is Baleka Freight. In September 2018, LiebenGroup acquired the majority stake in Baleka Distributors, which subsequently changed its name to Baleka Freight. Baleka augments the service offering of the LiebenGroup with additional truck configurations, simple and flexible on-demand solutions, and consolidated load services.

Corporate social responsibility

We are committed to serving the community and supporting positive growth in South Africa.

From 2004 to 2018, LiebenGroup partnered with Pick n Pay to support the Kids in Parks initiative, where children from previously disadvantaged backgrounds are hosted in national parks.

With the partnership coming to an end at the start of 2018, we decided to forge a long-term partnership with Goedgedacht Trust, as we support and share their values and aims. Goedgedacht’s Path out of Poverty (POP) programmes aim to transform and heal marginalised rural communities by providing opportunities for young people to break out of the cycles of generational poverty. Goedgedacht Trading provides partial funding for the Goedgedacht Trust, producing high quality olive oil, dressings and concentrates.

LiebenGroup supports the Goedgedacht family in three ways:

  • Donation of a purpose-fit branded delivery vehicle to Goedgedacht Trading
  • Funding the Goedgedacht Trust’s 1000 day programme
  • Continuing involvement with the Goedgedacht management and operations teams.
