Shipping to, from and within Africa

Africa is the world’s third fastest growing economic region with consumer expenditure expected to rise to as much as USD 1 trillion by 2020, bringing lucrative opportunities for global companies, distributors and retailers.

As the African shipping expert, we provide regular and comprehensive services to, from and across the continent, connecting you with your key markets and trading partners across Africa, Asia, Europe, North and South America, the Middle and Far East, and the Indian subcontinent.

And, with offices in 44 African countries, we provide you with personal service and local expertise.

Intermodal services

Shipping is not just about ships. Most cargo also needs to be transported inland, often at both ends of its journey. That’s why we offer extensive intermodal services to connect you with key inland locations across Africa and the world.

 If you wish, we can even take care of your cargo for its entire journey, from pick up through to delivery.
