Value added services

Our value-added services consist of driver coaching and behavior management, real time fleet management solutions utilising on-board event cameras and tracking, fuel card expense management, in-depth accident investigations, vehicle modifications according to client needs and vehicle maintenance and service.

Kishugu Fleet Solution’s intention is to offer a world-class fleet management and risk solution that will maximise driver and passenger safety while also minimising costs. This applies to moving assets and people. Apart of this service is vehicle procurement, finance, and insurance, maintenance and disposal of assets. A key element to ensure the cost-effectiveness of the total operation, which manages no less than 400 vehicles, is that of driver management. Good driver behaviour or a lack thereof, does have a very direct influence on cost-effectiveness. Driver training and development is ongoing and coupled with this is monitoring through telematics.

With multiple bases in every province around the country, it is imperative to pinpoint the movement and productivity of every vehicle at all times. The DriveCam system allows for the latter and has in fact, despite the constantly increasing fleet and increased kilometres, decreased the accident ratio and thus downtime and maintenance costs. KFS’ operation methodologies do not just contribute to Kishugu’s philosophy “for the greater good” of the communities it serves, but also extends to its staff, other road users and beyond.

Kishugu Holdings

Kishugu has over 32 years’ experience in a variety of global landscapes affected by fire. It has done extensive work in protecting, preventing and suppressing wildfire, based on applied research on all aspects of wildfire. For the last 17 years, this expertise enabled Kishugu to successfully implement the South African Governments’ Working on Fire Programme.

Today, it is the primary fire resource responsible for wildfire management across South Africa. The multi-award winning programme is celebrated as the most successful job creation and skills development programme in the history of South Africa.

Kishugu provides all aspects of Integrated Fire Management services to all affected sectors from governments, environmental and military agencies to forestry, agricultural companies to land users, NGO’s, national and multi-national development agencies, industry associations and Fire Protection Associations (FPA’s).

This includes everything needed in wildfire management from aircraft, vehicles, pilots, firefighters, incident management teams to equipment, tools and training.

Our global leadership in Integrated Fire Management is maintained through innovation and investing in people.

Our belief in high environmental and ethical standards is reflected in our core values of accountability, teamwork, excellence and making a difference.

Our specialised management teams are experts in diverse wildfire scenarios, from the grass and peat lands of Asia and South America to the tropical forests of Africa and beyond. We have the experience and capacity to tailor-make wildfire solutions to specific challenges. Kishugu can deal with virtually any wildfire scenario as we have the capacity and resources.
