Grub Route is a specialist provider of centralised, temperature-controlled cold chain solutions. Our core competency is streamlining your supply chain by effectively managing the full process; from the distribution to the storage of chilled and frozen products.

All of this is made possible with our centrally controlled logistics management system which ensures that all of our clients’ products and temperatures of the cold storage and transport units, can be remotely tracked and managed at all times. Making sure of the preservation of perishable goods until successful delivery is made to either the retailer or the end user.

Our centralised cold chain is efficient and effective – securing your goods en route towards its end use or destination. Even when held temporarily in cold or ambient storage – your goods are handled as precious cargo during the entire logistics cycle.

Vision Statement

Grub Route is establishing the most streamlined cold chain in Southern Africa.

Mission Statement

Delivering a cold chain solution that is more efficient, more effective, and more attractive than yesterday.


Whoever first said, “The simpler – the better” – nailed it as far as we are concerned. Simplicity is quite possibly one of the most difficult things to achieve. It is probably because simplicity defines what is most critical and then remains focussed on just that. It makes it possible to identify what should be priority – and then keeps on keeping that the priority. This is our recipe for success. Simplicity. We know that if we keep treating certain crucial keys as priority in our process, and make improvements on just that, everyday – your business will benefit from it.

Success is Simple.


Grub Route was established in 2003 at a premises in Olifantsfontein to service a small base of clients. Grub Route has since expanded its operations by not only increasing its client base in the retail industry, but also by extending its reach to 6 provinces within South Africa.

In 2015 Grub Route acquired a division of UniTrans’ Cold Chain operations which assisted in increasing Grub Route’s cold storage facilities to 4,200sqm. This has enabled Grub Route to better accommodate and respond to the requirements of large retail chains and clients.
