Airfreight

We have a strong, established airfreight offering and are one of the top IATA cargo agents in South Africa, allowing for strong buying power and access to capacity. As a partner of the AirCargoGroup, a global association of neutral airfreight wholesalers with a strong footprint, we can send your cargo to most airports globally to assist with all your EXW and DAP needs.

We have weekly import consoles from global hubs with back-to-back options available from over 100 countries. Together with our network partners, we can accommodate all your airfreight requirements, including commercial and charter solutions. We have global agreements with some of the top carriers, accessed through all four of our airfreight branches around the country.

Our highly-qualified staff and top-class facilities allow for the screening of export cargo onsite with the ability to collect and deliver your shipments on request, as well as assist with additional documentation needs.

Road Freight

CFR Freight uses its global network and Southern African regional coverage to provide seamless transshipment services to cross-border destinations.

All transshipment cargo is controlled through our sister company, ZacPak in Durban, where it is destuffed and consolidated for on-carriage into the SADC and BLNE region.

Through strict adherence to process and supplier Service Level Agreements, we endeavour to minimise transshipment delay and border disruptions.

In addition to LCL transshipment services into Southern Africa, we utilise ZacPak Durban to facilitate a cross-docking solution for FCL transshipment cargo.

This allows for reduced container turn-in costs, demurrage avoidance, and the need for container deposits to be lodged.
