History

Highway Group was founded in 1998 by Ben Deysel, the current Chief Executive. Highway Junction and Highway Truck Park were carefully planned and built after his more than 30 years in the transport industry. A combination of strategic vision and years of experience has led to Highway Junction exponential growth since 1998.

On 28 May 1999, Highway Junction was opened by then Minister of Transport, Mac Maharaj, and we have continuously expanded our service offering every year since opening our facility.

Highway Junction's objective is to provide a refuelling and ancillary service facility for heavy vehicles, where drivers can rest in a safe, secure and clean environment and with the OK Express offering a variety hygienically prepared food, and other grocery items. We can accommodate up to 390 large trucks for parking at that point in time.

Phase two commenced in 2002 when the adjacent old Harrismith show grounds were acquired and developed to complement phase one. This consisted of additional parking space, a driver's clubhouse, a bus rotunda, a clinic and warehousing facilities – now known as Highway Truck Park. The service facilities were outsourced and in addition, many other transport-related service providers have become tenants and now call Highway Junction their home.

As the largest truck stop in Africa, the group is well-positioned to focus on future requirements related to the logistics sector including the provision of warehousing, office space, truck repair facilities and container port facilities.
