Founded in 1970, BB Transport specializes in contract mining, rehabilitation, bulk earthworks, rehabilitation and civil construction. Predominantly operating in the Mpumalanga province of South Africa. On average, BB Transport runs between five and eight contracts simultaneously, mostly focusing on coal mines.

Our goal is to exceed the expectations of every client by offering outstanding customer service and great value. Our workforce is distinguished by their functional and technical expertise combined with their hands-on experience. All our employees are trained and equipped with all the necessary skill to give nothing but exceptional service to our clients, which they expect and deserve.

In order to provide the highest quality work on time and within budget, operation efficiency is key. To operate efficiently our organization not only relies on the expertise and skill of our workforce but also on all of the equipment that is essential to achieving our targets. Production targets will never be met if the plant availability and utilization is not at maximum. Detailed maintenance schedules, planning and collaboration between production and engineering is crucial and something we pride ourselves in. By following this principle we won’t only achieve our targets but our plant will stay in top condition.

A Great workforce in all portfolios needs leadership. Leadership is the driving force behind everything and determines the direction and success of any organization. BB Transport believes in Transformational Leadership as this has been the most effective way of leading our people. Every leader’s goal is to inspire their specific portfolio through effective communication and collaboration which initiates the path to success. We set challenging goals and higher expectations for ourselves and each employee, which ultimately leads to achieving greater results. By applying this BB Transport has completed many notable projects throughout Mpumalanga in the northern region of South Africa.

BB has grown from a small to medium-sized enterprise to a much larger organisation with an exceptional track record that speaks for itself .  The business keeps on growing and expanding due to our efficient and professional way of working.

From all of this it is clear that we view our employees, our non negotiable standards and our leadership style that enforces accountability as our keys to success and also the foundation of our business. We believe that with the good reputation we’ve got and relationships we’ve built for 50 years we can achieve continued success.
