New Johannesburg Head Office

Cargo Compass SA has moved into our new Johannesburg Head Office in September 2022.

Strategically located close to the airport and the main Gauteng road network arteries, the new 30 000 square-meter facility heralds a new era for Cargo Compass SA.

With a roof clear spring height of 15,5 meters, it allows for ample space for racking in the warehouse that also boasts 16 dock levellers and five on-grade doors. This allows for the handling of a variety of vehicles including super links.

It also has a bonded storage warehouse (OS) and Special Operating Store (SOS) with 3500 pallet positions. A spice store with self-contained extraction and odour neutralisation as well as a cold storage facility for storing goods between 12 and 16°c completes the offering.

A total of 600 kilowatts of photovoltaic panels on the roof ensures the premises are never without electricity. Provision has been made for electric vehicle charging ensuring the facility is also future-proof and can adequately adapt to developments as and when they occur.

In a first for South Africa, a robotic cleaner has been deployed for the operation. This scrubbing machine operates 100% autonomously - from docking and charging itself to restocking cleaning equipment and water to the actual cleaning. It covers an average of 1000 square meters per hour meaning the warehouse is fully cleaned every two days.

State-of-the-art technology has been deployed to ensure the security of our new building. This includes facial and license plate recognition. A double perimeter fence fitted with infra-red motion sensor cameras secures the property while camera technology has also been deployed both inside and outside the buildings. All of the security systems are tied to multiple armed response companies.
