About Southern Logistics - “You Think It, We Build It”
David Bhagwandass, owner and founder of Southern Logistics. The company was founded in 1998. David began buying and selling empty drums and used containers for resale which was used primarily for storage to earn a respectable and honest life for his family. In the early days, David bought and delivered these storage units himself, but soon he began thinking and exploring new ideas which developed into a niche market by utilizing the container units into marketable solutions. In the early 1990's, he took his smart idea from conceptual to realistic. Southern Logistics took on the task and challenge by modifying used containers into solutions which can be used by the country industrial companies and government agencies. These solutions include mobile offices, mobiles labs, dormitories, multi-story structures, police outpost, army offices, training centers, security solutions, dormitories, storage solutions, recreation facilities, office/storage combo and also many more custom solutions for all commercial, industrial and personal uses.
In 2006, Southern Logistics under the leadership of David was diversified into several lines of business. The company now offers its clients in addition to containerize and storage solutions, a full range of services such as transportation services, site work construction, and general contracting and construction management.
