Caltex Eastern Cape Marketer needed their own reliable transporter to deliver fuel to the eastern most parts of the network, out of Durban. The answer was to assist in the development of a BEE start-up. Crusade Logistics was formed in the second half of 2015 with the assistance of a loan from CECM to buy their first two trucks. Crusade Logistics now has eight trucks and services five of the most eastern Caltex Eastern Cape Marketer sites.
