Transport SIG Background:
The state-owned arivia.kom established a Transport Forum in 2005 with the main goal of enhancing the transport process in South Africa.  This necessitated the establishment of a Transport Special Interest Group within the organisation to address challenges with participants who are passionate about the transport sector. At the end of 2009, arivia.kom was acquired by T-Systems SA (Pty)Ltd who now acts as the Platinum Sponsor of the Transport Forum.
