From a couple of pieces of excess baggage to a full household – even cars and motorbikes – we handle all types of personal air freight to South Africa.

Once your goods reach the airport in South Africa our local partner will arrange customs clearance and delivery to your new home. Alternatively, save money and opt for a ‘door-to-airport’ service and collect your goods directly from the airport in South Africa.

We supply free packing boxes, tape and bubble wrap for all airfreight shipments to South Africa and we can manufacture wooden transit cases for fragile items if required.

Consolidated Airfreight to South Africa

For very small shipments to South Africa, our consolidated airfreight service may prove cheaper than the equivalent sea freight service. This is due to the lower handling charges at the airport and simplified customs clearance procedures which reduce overhead costs. Consolidated airfreight shipments are bulked together with other clients sending airfreight to South Africa and sent under a single air waybill to our airfreight partner in South Africa. With at least two consolidated airfreight departures to South Africa every week the slight increase in transit time is compensated by the reduction in air freight rate to South Africa against main carrier rates.
