Formed in 1977 as Dawson, Royle & Willan, the company was a division of CNA Limited, specialising in import consolidation for the book and magazine industry. 

In 1987 Dawson Royle & Willan merged with the clearing and forwarding division of the Premier Group and the company became Premier Freight: a full freight management company for all commodities; from small parcels to specialised projects.

In 1997 Sasfin Holdings Limited became the major shareholder of Premier Freight and in 2012, acquired the remaining shares to own 100% of the company. Today Imperial Sasfin Logistics shareholding is 70% Imperial Logistics and 30% Sasfin making Imperial Sasfin Logistics arguably the most all-encompassing, one-stop solution for clients involved in international trade.
