Emile van der Vyver started his journey as a mechanic, working on Alfa Romeos in the heart of Cape Town at the age of 17. He later moved on to sell insurance before finding his true passion in transport.
In 1984 Emile and brother Corrie started Van der Vyver Transport by sub-contracting for other transporters. Emile later continued the business on his own, hiring key members along the way to grow the business into what it is today. Van der Vyver Transport is currently operating with over 130 trucks and trailers, and over 200 staff members. Emile stays true to his routes by taking care of his own and treating his staff with respect.
His values and work ethic are what helped establish this business and set the tone to bring it to where it is today. He is more passionate about what he does then ever before and looks to keep building for future generations.
