About Turners Secretariat

The Turner Group was founded in 1896 primarily to service the shipping industry with forwarding and clearing services. The organisation's head offices are in Durban with regional offices in Johannesburg and Cape Town. Other companies in the group include Turners Shipping, Turners Forwarding, Turners Warehousing, Turners Trade Finance, Turners Conferences, and XL Turners Travel.

Turners Secretariat was established in 2004 as part of Turners Conferences to offer secretariat support for conference clients. Many of the clients continued to use our services once the conference event had finished, and the success of this service has lead us to establish Turners Secretariat as a separate division of The Turner Group of companies.

Turners Secretariat is committed to progressively increasing our contribution to the objectives of the Country’s Broad-based Black Economic Empowerment programme. Turners Secretariat will be focusing on specific areas which will maximise our objectives in this regard.

These include:
• Enterprise Development
• Socio-Economic Development
• Skills Development
• Preferential Procurement

Our experienced team of dedicated staff using our purpose designed information technology, along with trusted systems are able to offer a full association secretariat service.
