Fleetwatch



Stellar Transport has a depot situated in Edenvale, Johannesburg and in Sasolburg, Free State where all vehicles are serviced, washed and maintained. The company has taken the decision to operate fully equipped workshop facilities and wash bays from both depots. We subscribe to a vigorous maintenance schedule, including preventative maintenance checks, vehicle defect reporting and inspections: daily inspections and weekly inspections.

All the drivers are issued with the correct PPE in order for them to carry out their necessary duties. The drivers are issued with branded overalls and are aware that their actions are a reflection on our company. The idea of branding dedicated vehicles has also been raised by our customers.

The technical staff has been trained by the agents and manufacturers in order to equip Stellar Transport maintenance team with the knowledge to carry out servicing at the correct intervals as prescribed by SAN10231 Maintenance Policy. To ensure that all Operations Personnel and Maintenance staff have a clear understanding of the requirements as per manufacturer specifications.

In addition to this we have two breakdown units with qualified mechanics to tend to on the road mechanical breakdowns. The staffs in the workshops and wash bays work on a shift basis and can attend to vehicles 24 hours per day. The vehicles would be subjected to our standard procedures with regards to maintenance, washing and driver relief on a rotation basis in conjunction with work schedules and delivery demand.
