According to Scott, working as a courier helps him to stay active even when he isn’t training hard.

"I only started running long distance about 18 months ago when my wife of 26 years, Angela, nominated me out of the blue. I told her I could probably manage about 10 kilometres. I couldn’t believe it when she told me she’d put me down for the full 21 kilometres!

"I managed to run four half marathons last year, but I’ve only done two so far in 2013. I’ll hopefully squeeze in a couple more before the year ends," says Scott.

When quizzed about his 20 years with Fastway, Scott says the secret to his success in both business and fitness is setting achievable goals.

"In all my years here at Fastway, I've never looked as this as just a job. It's my business and it should be treated that way. Every week, I set myself targets to work towards. I think if you look at anything as just a job or a chore, then you’ve lost all perspective," says Scott.

"To make it in this industry, you’ve obviously got to be a people person. Over the years, I’ve seen some changes in the company, but one thing that’s stayed the same is the degree of simplicity that Fastway offers its customers."

When asked about the future, Scott says he plans to stay with Fastway and to keep on running.

The Coal and Allied Winery Running Festival will be held in the Hunter Valley on Sunday, 21 July.

Fastway Couriers is currently celebrating 30 years in business and 20 years in Australia.

Latest news


    To all our Customers, Franchisees, Staff and other stakeholders,

    Our President has instituted a national lockdown and has instructed local businesses to close and for South Africans to stay at home. The lockdown will endure for 21 days and will come into effect from midnight on Thursday 26 March 2020.

    Fastway will close on Thursday 26 March 2020.

    Our last pick-up day will be today for 24hour deliveries.

    The impact of this shutdown will be substantial and will require a rapid shift in behaviour. We must be tolerant, assist each other where we can and pull together to slow the spread of COVID-19 for the good of our country and our people.

    We appreciate there are some customers that send essential supplies (as defined), however we cannot commit our entire network, and place franchisees, staff and the public at risk for a limited few.

    All our depots have been instructed to work from home and divert phones to continue to take any calls that might come in. The National Master office is contactable on 011 234 9393 or on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. No couriers will be available during the lockdown.

    We are living through an incredible moment in the history of our country and the World and we must selflessly do our bit to help. We understand and appreciate the impact this will have on everyone, our business included, but the lives and wellbeing of our fellow South African’s has to take precedence.

    Taking President Ramaphosa’s cue, swift and decisive action now will put us all on a path to a speedy recovery and Fastway will be ready for business as soon as the lockdown is lifted. We will use this time to remotely complete technology integrations with new customers and develop new technology products that will benefit you once we get back to normal.

    “It is said that the darkest hour of the night comes just before the dawn.”

    By pulling together we can bring the dawn forward by heeding our President’s request to stay at home.

    We wish you and your loved ones everything of the best during this trying time.

    Stay safe.

    Richard Robinson

    Chief Executive
