Nkosinathi Peaceman Chiliza
Act Logistics Gauteng
Nathi is an incredibly skilled and professional truck driver with a passion for safety and efficiency on the road. He has been with ACT Logistics for 15+ years without a single incident on the road.
I have been consistently impressed by Nathi’s attention to detail and dedication to delivering goods on time and in top condition. Nathi’s driving is a testament to his experience and expertise behind the wheel. I feel confident knowing that he is on the road, delivering goods with precision and care.
Nathi’s professionalism and commitment to excellence make him stand out as one of the best truck drivers I have ever worked with. He truly goes above and beyond to ensure that his deliveries are completed flawlessly. Whether navigating busy city streets or rural highways, Nathi’s driving skills are second to none. He is a true master of the road, and it shows in the quality of his work.
Nathi used to deliver to a very special lady and when he had time, he would sit and have a cup of tea with her and discuss politics, today’s children and the good old days – a driver and a friend!
