    Looking for freight-forwarding company - Durban port

    Can anyone recommend a reliable, professional freight-forwarding company operating from Durban port?

    We will be shipping in goods from SE Asia, to Durban port. We need port clearance, customs clearance plus onward shipment to a warehouse located in Pinetown, KZN.

    We'd like to use a reliable, trustworthy, hassle-free operator who knows what they are doing. The consignments will generally be full container loads, although there will be the occasional small order, or one-offs. Thanks for your assistance.

    I have used UTI for years now. They hold my hand the whole way. I order the goods, fill out a few forms, and they deliver it to me. I don't have to worry about all the complicated requirements in between. Don't know if they're the cheapest, as I'm happy enough not to shop around.

    They are a large group, so will have offices in Durban. I only have a JHB number: 011 387 4000. Just explain what you want done and they'll forward you to the correct dept.

    Thanks so much BusFact.

    Hand-holding is most definitely what I'm after. Do you perhaps have an internet link to these folks?

    But it doesn't look too informative - too much corporate blurb.

    Hi desA,

    We use Worldnet to import goods from the U.S. and have had no issues, we recently shopped around for quotes and Worldnet still beat everyone else for cost.

    Greetings

    Good day

    I am the Operations Manager for a freight forwarding company. I think a forum platform such as this one is a great way to connect business people with each other in a more informal manner. Pity that I happened upon this only now.

    desA, you are welcome to get in touch with me. It would be my pleasure to submit our company profile to you as well as the rates we can offer.

    Wishing you an awesome day!
