Women in the Driving Seat

Tolcon Lehumo, formed after a women-empowered group joined Murray & Roberts, is South Africa’s leading traditional tolling operator. It is also the most gender-empowered company in the country’s transport, infrastructure and logistics sectors according to the judges of the ninth annual Top Women Awards, announced in August 2012.

Tolcon Lehumo, which operates the N3, N1 North, N17, Mariannhill and Oribi routes, empowers its people with a specific focus on women, many of whom live in rural communities.

Tocon Lehumo’s CEO is female, as are two-thirds of all employees, more than half of management and the Board representatives and more than a quarter of the shareholders in a predominantly male sector. The company’s focus on empowerment and upliftment has earned it a level 2 BBBEE rating.
