These are the moral standards we strive to live by. The compass we use as our guide is based on Biblical principles and by setting these high standards we are by no means claiming that we have achieved them; but we believe they guide us on a life long journey of growth, making some mistakes, apologizing, re-learning; but we are committed to this journey to better ourselves and the lives of those we interact with.

A brief look at our 35-year legacy – Where it all began

The business was founded by the late Jannie Kleynhans (a well-known charismatic legend in the industry) who started the business with an old 1974 model Mercedes Benz Tipper truck back in 1983. He was the only employee who drove his truck, managed clients, marketed and repaired his own truck on the driveway of his home. He was a very strong-willed, passionate and charismatic man that always had a big dream. Through grace and very hard work, he and his wife, Wilma Kleynhans built up the business to a highly respected player in the transport industry. Jannie Kleynhans suddenly passed away in 2009, leaving the business to his 2 sons, Jean, and Jacques who is still running the family business.

what is in a name?

Long before there were thought of opening a business it so happened that the 2 Kleynhans sons were named, Jean and Jacques, both starting with the letter J like their father, Jannie. When the sons joined the business back in 2001 some changes were made and when the sons became directors the business name was changed from Kleynhans Transport to the JKT Group J for Jannie, Jean, and Jacques, K for Kleynhans and T for Transport.

As a family owned and operated business we build long term relationships with staff that becomes part of the family. Just to give a short testimony: in 1985 my dad Jannie Kleynhans employed his first driver, Robert Magqazana a young Xhosa man from Macassar. He was our best driver and retired from our company in 2017 after serving us for 32years! We believe the secret to success is in your staff as any business is run by people. If your staff is happy in their work environment they will be productive and look after the assets of the company as their own. Our motto has always been “If the company bears fruit we will all share in the fruit of our combined effort”.
