The Association representative of towing and

recovery operators throughout South Africa

The South African Towing and Recovery Association was formed by a group of heavy duty towing operators on the 26th Nov 1986 (click here) and formalized in terms of section 21 of the Companies' Act of 1973 in 1990. SATRA became dormant thereafter and was resurrected in 2001 after resounding interest by the Towing and Recovery Industry in response to the Proposed Tow Truck Bill, which was aimed at regulation of the Towing and Recovery Industry by the National Department of Transport. SATRA commenced operations in January of 2002 and was structured in terms of our constitution.

While SATRA's primary focus was to comply with the regulatory requirements of the National Department of Transport, SATRA believes that in order for the Towing and Recovery Industry to self regulate effectively, the Industry needs to achieve sustainable growth and maintain high standards of service delivery, ethics and integrity. SATRA's long term strategy is to relentlessly drive the standards of the the Towing and Recovery Industry upwards by the achievement of sustainable and continued empowerment of its members and the maintenance and protection of the interests of all its stakeholders. SATRA's stakeholders are SATRA's customers, suppliers and employees as well as the government and the public.

SATRA's continued focus is the consolidation of the national interest of its members and stakeholders as it strives to align the towing industry to the Codes of Good Practice for Broad - Based Black Economic Empowerment - B-BBEE - NOTICE No: 112 of 2007 as gazetted on 09 February 2007 in the Government Gazette No: 29617.
