Within just two years of opening their offices in South Africa, Inchcape Shipping Services has been awarded the coveted Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) Level 2 accreditation.
“This is a milestone in our growth and highlights the commitment that Inchcape Shipping is prepared to make towards the development of the South African economy and South African society,” said ISS Regional Senior VP, Allan Vermaak.
“In the South African context this is a huge achievement. It means we are now very well positioned to tender for government contracts as well as those of the large multinational companies in South Africa who are strictly regulated in terms of BEE accreditation.
“What makes this even more significant is that we have achieved such a high level rating. The minimum requirement to operate in South African ports is Level 4 but there was a strong commitment from amongst the team here to go for Level 2.”
Kirsty Fillis, ISS Business Development Manager for Africa, added: “We all worked very hard to achieve this accreditation and it is a credit to our whole team that we obtained it in such a relatively short time.”
