DB Schenker South Africa




Schenker’s robust South African logistics infrastructure is the ideal pivot for our operations throughout the rest of the African continent.skip: Intro

In other parts of Africa, we’ve teamed up with local freight agents — not only to encourage local entrepreneurs moving into this exciting and rapidly developing arena, but also to ensure that our business dealings are conducted with due respect for each country’s legislation, environment, culture and people.

Through our sizeable combined operations in Africa, Schenker enjoys buying power benefits which we pass on to our customers directly, in the form of a highly competitive pricing structure. Our customers have responded by entrusting us with their freight needs in the long term, creating sound and enduring relationships.

For single items, standard bulk or abnormal bulk loads, Schenker has built up a substantial international client base conducting trade in African countries. These clients have come to rely on our team’s specialised knowledge of the complex legal requirements associated with moving cargo into, around and out of Africa.

The highly qualified Schenker team prides itself on taking a proactive approach to completing the unique paperwork requirements required by officials at each border post, to make for a smooth transition of goods into and out of each respective country.

Cargo visibility is another key aspect of our African operations, providing customised tracking of all cargo that yields real time information on the status and location of the goods.

Less-than-container-load (LCL) cargo is consolidated at our Johannesburg hub and dispatched into Africa, while full truck loads are sent directly from their countries of origin to their destinations throughout the continent.

 We move cargo into and out of industries that include:

  • telecommunications
  • mining equipment & mineral resources
  • Information Technology
  • non-perishable foodstuffs
  • catering equipment
  • industrial equipment & machinery
  • aeroparts
  • automotive spares
  • non-hazardous chemicals
  • personal effects
  • documents

 With transit times from overnight to weekly transit — and anything in between — we will move your cargo via:

  • airfreight
  • sea freight
  • road freight
