A milestone of Bosch Ulwazi’s ‘Enterprise and Supplier Development’ (ESD) programme for Transnet Pipelines, which commenced in 2015, was the presentation of ISO certificates to nine emerging enterprises.

The Transnet Pipelines ‘Business Breakthrough Initiative’ supports enterprise development initiatives that create and expand opportunities for black owned enterprises, with a turnover of less than R35-million.
