About us


In 2000, German based international freight forwarder Röhlig & Co merged with multi-faceted South African based logistics management group, Grindrod Limited and the powerful Röhlig-Grindrod (Pty) Ltd was formed.

This merger has created many strategic advantages. Grindrod’s strong and well established shipping, freight management and financial services network and additional volumes combined with Röhlig’s experience, strong management, sound financials and a global network results in stronger buying and negotiating power that benefits clients with the most competitive rates and improved service through the group’s extended expertise network.
