Takealot could just branch into home security if they used Mauraders for their delivery vehicles. If someone is breaking into your house, just order a pair of socks for same day delivery and the friendly Takealot courier will come and flatten the vehicles of any home invader gratis.

A courier carrying, amongst many other things, one of my orders from the supplier, was recently hijacked and rolled while trying to get away, destroying 5x MSI RTX 3080 SUPRIM X cards.

Tears of frustration, yes, as it took almost a month for replacement stock to arrive.

Meh, I don't have pics of the cards themselves anymore, just of some of the boxes. The cards basically looked like bananas as, while the sides and underneath are well protected, there is only a thin sheet of styrofoam on top.

Hey at least you got your replacements... given the worldwide shortage thats a miracle in and of itself.

Hope the driver was ok after the ordeal though?

He was chased a short way (I dread to think what would have happened had the hijackers caught up with him) but other than that, no physical harm.

A friend of mine ( Logistics company) were transporting medical supplies.
The cops pulled the truck over.
escorted the truck to the police station.
While the driver were inside the police station the truck was emptied out.
The police just feigned surprise..

South africa has past the point of no return, crime cannot be reduced as long as there is poverty and poverty cannot be reduced as long as there are criminals like the ANC in power.

We see it everyday , all industries are feeling the pressure, if its not blatant criminals stealing then its criminal organisations disguised as community forums blackmailing and sabotaging legitimate business efforts to conform to their wishes.
