Buyer's Consolidation

this service offering is subject to availability based on various in-country regulations. The service allows importers to consolidate multiple consignments from their foreign suppliers into one container, thereby eliminating multiple shipments, customs clearances and destination delivery charges. Suppliers would typically need to be orientated around one location and in one country, although in the case of Europe, we are able to assemble shipments from multiple EU member states. Speak to us – let’s see if there is a fit for you.

Cross Docking

this option is available globally, but is prevalent on the Durban-Johannesburg corridor whereby we destuff inbound cargo and load outbound cargo at our Durban facility, thus cutting out the costs and the sometimes inefficiency of inland transfers of containerized cargo.
