New Farm Transport Vehicles
Cape Orchard Company’s CEO, Gerhard de Kock, has developed a new worker transportation system in partnership with the Namibian Road Safety authorities and Department of Transportation. The new vehicles provide a safer, more comfortable, and more cost effective transport option, compared to the previously used bus system.
The vehicle features many new benefits, including protection from sun and dust, roof ventilation, interior lights, and fire extinguishers, all providing a safer transport environment. In addition, vehicles include,
– Advanced braking system, comparable to that used in large trucks
– 800 litre stainless steel water tank that provides clean drinking water for workers
– First-aid station
– Rooftop solar panels allow workers to charge their mobile phones
