Company History

The group was founded in 1990 with a fleet of only 10 trucks. The companies making up the group are registered with TATOA.

Over the years the Group’s flagship Swift Motors Limited grew into a transport giant with a modest fleet of 250 trucks & trailers delivering cargo to the East African Community taking under its banner several companies that continue working autonomous partners of SML.

With these ventures, SML manages to reduce overheads using these conjunctions and also lets these companies operate independently. Partner companies are Imara Express, Smart Tyres and Torque which specialize in retreading and distribution of Tires.

The group has also diversified into Petroleum transportation, retreading of tyres, distribution of brake pads and new tyres. The recent development will give us a competitive urge over our completion.

Over the years we have amassed experience in Customs Clearing and moving different types of cargo within East and part of Central Africa.[Democratic Republic of Congo and Zambia].
