Our story, 20 years in the making

BEX was launched from our MD’s garage in the South of Johannesburg on 1 July 1994. Little did we know then that 20 years of courier excellence would transpire.

At BEX, our slogan is “we deliver”. A strong emphasis has always been placed on providing customers with excellent service levels at competitive prices with every shipment entrusted with us. Ending this slogan with a ‘full stop’ brings importance and finality to our proud statement, because after all, it says exactly what we do here at BEX - we deliver. With over 20 years in the logistics industry, our passionate team offers the perfect blend of service, professionalism and excellent IT infrastructure. Welcome to the world of BEX Express...
