new transport venture
A KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) based transport company received a tremendous boost thanks to an enterprise and supplier development partnership MOU signed in 2022 between Sappi Southern Africa and the Ithala Development Finance Corporation Limited (IDFC). Sanele Mkhize, Managing Director of Exodec 384 CC, took delivery of three brand new Mercedes trucks valued at R11.6 million on Thursday 26 October, thanks to a financing agreement from IDFC.
For a company to support a venture that started out as a straightforward CSI programme and to nurture it through the decades to become an integral, thriving division in its supply chain, is both remarkable and commendable.
