We are the consolidation freight group that will shift your world. CFR Freight has been operating as a strictly neutral NVOCC for over 25 years offering LCL and FCL Ocean Freight services to the forwarding and clearing industry. In an effort to create an intermodal offering to our clients, an airfreight division was added in 2001 and was followed by warehousing solutions, under the name of ZacPak, in 2010. In 2011, we added CAFS Mauritius as a subsidiary of CFR Freight, expanding our African footprint. With offices in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban, Port Elizabeth & Port Louis, we employ over 200 staff and have positioned ourselves as the leading groupage operator in Southern Africa, offering our clients a full suite of supply chain solutions under one banner. CFR Freight is a founding member of the Worldwide Alliance, an association of the world's leading neutral NVOCCs and a member of the AirCargoGroup, a global organization of neutral Air Freight wholesalers.
While the new codes pose challenges for ourselves and our industry,
we find opportunities in transforming these into viable and much
more needed projects which result in true evolution for our country.
By focusing on what we can change, we are able to create life,
transforming opportunities for others through:

Luyanda Primary School
Situated in the heart of the informal settlement of Motherwell in the Eastern Cape is the Luyanda pre-school and crèche. What was once a forgotten derelict zinc structure, where a partial leaking roof was being held up with gum poles, and broken pallets where being used as a floor is where we found Alicia Sicwebu and her five volunteers trying to make a difference in an extremely underprivileged environment by teaching in excess of sixty children from the ages of one year through to grade R. The majority of these children are living with relatives due to their parents being victims of HIV/AIDS and in some cases do not have the privilege of a cooked meal. Building under these circumstances was not an easy task.
As our SEO project, we were searching for a sustainable project. In 2010 CFR embarked on giving back to the community by demolishing this excuse for a school and building a bigger, safer proper school, creating an environment where children can be taught, play and have fun.
Five years on and this royal blue building is the center of attraction, boasting running water, proper sewerage and pay as you go electricity. There is a kitchen, office, two very large classrooms, an outside covered area, grassed areas for playing, paving, fencing and two in-door toilets. Each day the children are guaranteed at least one wholesome cooked meal from the school at no additional cost.
his has been a sustainable project for CFR of which we are very proud. Each year we assist with whatever maintenance is required to the building. In addition to this we continue to donate playing equipment, cots, toys, and may other items all for the children.
CFR Freight’s Environmental Footprint
Turning Play into a Resource and Having Fun!
As CFR Freight prepared to celebrate its 20th anniversary, the company chose to mark the milestone
event by donating a gift that will continue giving – to those members of the community who need it
“We’ve chosen to do things differently,” CFR Freight MD Martin Keck told FTW, a weekly freight publication,
“turning tradition on its head and giving a gift to the country and its people who have made our success possible.”
CFR identified the two most common concerns in Africa to the basic right of access to a supply of clean
water supply and an education and has came up with a gift that addresses both of these concerns.
“In rural areas, it has traditionally been the responsibility of women and female children to supply the
family unit with water collected from nearby rivers or lakes, often at the expense of not attending school.
Our gift to the country is the ‘Play Pump’ - a borehole and water tank system that is driven not
by a windmill or motor, but by a children’s merry-go-round.”
The pumps are in the form of a merry-go-round which harness the energy of the school children to transfer water from a borehole into a holding tank. “The spin-off from having basic resources available to rural communities are countless. Clean water can now be used for cleaning, as drinking water for livestock, and to water vegetable gardens,” says Martin Keck.
How can we achieve this?
With the assistance and support of our clients, we would like to see many Play Pumps erected in the rural communities of South Africa and therefore have challenged all our clients to fill virtual water tanks with 112 000 litres of water each which will result in more Play Pumps being erected. For every cbm of sea freight export cargo booked with CFR Freight, 5 litres of water will be pumped into the virtual tank. For every 100 kgs of airfreight export cargo booked we will contribute 1 litre. We keep clients updated on a monthly basis on the progress and how close we are to providing the next water station.
CFR invites its clients to join the company in giving something back to the community and helping the country’s rural population to get access to clean water while providing a platform for education and fun.
To date we have play pumps in the following ereas:
