Our year of celebration

We are proudly celebrating the last 50 years of our Tip Trans journey. Our company started in 1967, by Fanie Visser, a well-known businessman and entrepreneur in the Western Cape, has thus far stood the test of time by continuously adapting to an ever-changing socio-economic environment with innovative product and service offerings. A true testament to the Visser family’s entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to service excellence. Click on the icon below to read more about our projects for 2017.


Our proud history dates back to 1964, when the legendary Fanie Visser founded Fanie Visser Vervoer. A well-known entrepreneur in the Western Cape, Fanie built the company on strong family values such as quality, service excellence, reliability, accountability and efficiency. Pieter Visser, Fanie’s youngest son, bought the company in 1994 to continue the family legacy. With his dynamic disposition, fresh outlook and the support of his team, Pieter grew the company to increase its footprint in South Africa and its neighbouring countries. Since then, Pieter and his team has gained valuable experience and undergone many changes in corporate and management structure to adapt to an ever-changing economy – while staying true to the core values that form the foundation of their success.

Good Governance

Pieter’s exposure to the corporate environment affirmed the importance of adhering to good governance: providing fair and equal opportunities in the work environment, reaching out to our local communities, and safeguarding our employees through health and safety initiatives.
  • Affirmative action

    It is our aim to gain a competitive edge over competitors through the combined talents of each member of our labour force. We want to do that by eradicating all forms of discrimination, by focussing on the development and investment in human resources, and by providing equal economic opportunities to everyone.

    Affirmative action
  • Health & safety

    We are committed to the moral, legal and financial responsibility to protect and safeguard our employees against occupational risk to their health or safety arising from any of the operations of our business. We also strictly adhere to all onsite Health & Safety regulations imposed by our clients.

    Health & safety
  • Internal development

    We believe in fostering a culture that supports Affirmative Action by ensuring fair representation of disadvantaged groups throughout the company. We do this by providing appropriate training and development to equip previously disadvantaged employees with the necessary skills. We also continuously monitor our efforts against set targets to ensure the success of this initiative.

    Internal development
  • Social responsibility

    Our direct social investment strategies revolve around initiatives that will yield the intellectual empowerment South Africans to be globally sought after participants in our industry and thus enhance the intellectual competitiveness of our country. We are also committed to progressive transformation and we align ourselves with the BEE and EE strategies of our country.
