Friday, 13 May, 2022

Coffee Magazine is thrilled to announce a new partnership between Fastway Couriers and Coffee Magazine's "A Shot in the Dark", presented by Genio Roasters. 

If you ask Iain and Mel from Coffee Magazine, this partnership could not be a better fit. "As South Africa's premier coffee roasting competition, A Shot in the Dark is a logistical beast to pull together" says Mel. "We have used Fastway Couriers in our businesses for the last 9 years, and have had excellent service and reliability, even through all of the disasters that we've faced over the past 2 years."   says Mel, rolling her eyes as she thinks about magazine subscriptions, coffee boxes and competition packs - getting to where they need to be during a time of COVID, Floods and Riots in KZN". 

Iain adds "We approached our local KZN Fastway branch and chatted to them about the opportunity that existed in getting the "A Shot in the Dark" competition packs to the competitors, and what that would entail, and also how reliant coffee businesses are in this day and age on a reliable courier partner. They immediately jumped on board and we couldn't be happier with the synergy that exists between our Industry's needs and the services offered by Fastway"

Kenneth Vincent, General Manager of Fastway Couriers Durban says "Our mission has always been to "Delight the customer at the door". When it comes to the coffee industry, we see a need on the input side and the outgoing product side of these businesses, so to be able to do that when we are delivering stock to a store and when we are collecting orders to take to an end customer of that store fulfils our core function. Being part of "A Shot in the Dark" in 2022 is incredibly exciting for us because it is a chance for us to meet new coffee roasters and learn about their needs in this challenging logistical landscape that we run businesses in."

Fastway Couriers is a franchise based company, so for 2022, Kenneth and the Fastwy Couriers Durban Team are leading the project, along with support from the other Regional Franchises. Look out for their promotional material in upcoming Coffee Magazine editions, on our website and during the "A Shot in the Dark" 2022 competition!
