FP Du Toit to assist BW cancer apple project


FP du Toit will assist Bank Windhoek with the transport of apples for the Bank Windhoek 2017 Cancer Apple project from South Africa to Namibia in their cooler trucks and with the distribution of the apples in Windhoek and across the country.

“The project is now in its 17th year and has become one of the biggest national fundraising projects in Namibia and its success largely depends on the support of the Namibian nation and the efforts made by our staff members and partners,” says Suzette January, Communication Practitioner at Bank Windhoek and the coordinator of the Bank Windhoek Cancer Apple Project.

The FP du Toit Transport Group is made up of a number of business units with their own focus markets and transport service offerings. These include FP du Toit Transport, Wesbank Transport, Pro Parcel Distribution and JET. X Couriers and they operate on the Trans Kunene, Trans Kalahari and Trans Caprivi corridors. This well-known transport company provides transport and logistics services to various destinations within the SADC region.

“Our group is very excited to be part of the Bank Windhoek Cancer Apple Project and is looking forward to work together with Bank Windhoek and the Cancer Association of Namibia (CAN) to keep the continuous success rate of this well-known corporate social responsibility project. With more than 560 power units and a compliment of 1000 staff members, FP du Toit Transport Group is continuing its growth in the region as well as the expansion of service offerings and we are happy to be associated with the Bank Windhoek Cancer Apple Project,” said Stephan Terblanche, Chief Executive Officer at FP du Toit Transport Group.
