RFA elects new office bearers
Gerhard Marais

Directors of the Road Freight Association (RFA) have elected a new team of office bearers for a two-year term, with Nico van der Westhuizen, chief executive officer of Imperial Logistics’ Transport and Warehousing Division, as RFA chairperson. Gerhard Marais, who is product group manager, Logistics Services at Roshcon SOC Limited, has been elected vice chairperson.

Van der Westhuizen has been a board member of the association for four years, while Marais was appointed two years ago.

According to a statement issued by the RFA, Van der Westhuizen's focus during the term will be threefold:

1)      Ensure the RFA is run as a professional organisation that will add value to its members;

2)      Improve stakeholder relationships; and

3)      Ensure the powerful lobbying platform of the RFA is used to its full potential.

 

“Our industry is facing significant challenges such as rising input costs (fuel, tolls, permits etc.),” says Van der Westhuizen. "These need to be addressed through the vital lobbying platform that the RFA provides.”
