It is an undeniable fact that South Africa has a rather sophisticated logistics industry and that freight companies operating successfully in the local industry make use of world-class strategies and technology in the field. Many people overlook the fact that it is the performance, efficiency, and effectiveness of freight companies in the industry that affects just how competitive South Africa’s industries can be on a global scale.

The freight industry is faced with a number of obstacles and these are not unique to the South African environment, but present on a global basis. Competition over the years has been rife as a result of rising costs in the industry, tighter margins, and demands for improved efficiency. If you are in the import and/or export business, chances are that you need to move goods long distances and need to find ways in which to cut back on expenses without compromising on swift delivery and a hassle-free freight process. There are so many things that you have to take into consideration when moving goods locally or internationally. First and foremost, you will need to make sure that you are aware of the regulations and restrictions involved when it comes to moving the type of goods that you are moving. It is also important that you are aware of the applicable taxes, customs processes, and whether or not your chosen freight company has the expertise to deal with the type of product that you are shipping.



You also need to know what type of freight service is best suited to your needs and requirements. There are many options to choose from that include airfreight, sea freight and road freight. Let us take a closer look at some of the options that are available to you:

·         Airfreight – it is important that your chosen freight company has a preferred network of global airlines to ensure that your parcel or consignment gets from A to B in good time and that it is handled with the utmost care. Airfreight is the type of service you use if you want a speedy delivery that is convenient to both parties (sender and recipient). BCE Global is dedicated to prompt and efficient service for our customers. We provide our clients with options, which means that you can choose air express services for high-priority packages and economy services for for more affordable delivery to any destination. And we offer these services on a door-to-door and airport-to-airport basis, for your ultimate convenience. Our airfreight services are available globally.

·         Road freight – while road freight is not the fastest way to get a consignment from A to B, it is certainly a great deal more cost-effective than airfreight and a great option for large deliveries. If you can afford to allow more time for a package to reach its destination, road freight is a good option. We offer our road freight services locally and across Africa. In addition, we are dedicated to keeping our rates competitive and that means that we will not expect you to hire a complete container for the delivery of your goods. We do have full-container load options for large consignments, but if you want to reduce costs and you do not mind sharing the container space, we offer affordable part-container load options. To meet the demand, we make use of a network of trusted haulers and ensure that only the best care is taken in the handling of your consignment.

·         Sea freight – sea freight is a great option for consignments that are not time dependant. You might also be surprised at how many destinations can be reached via sea freight, that are not even available with other freight options. Much like our road freight, we offer our customers the option of full-container loads and part-container loads and we are able to keep you updated on the progress of your consignment’s delivery on a 24-hour basis. On a port-to-port and door-to-door basis, we can get your consignment to over 100 destinations all across the world!


If you are looking for freight companies that are able to service your needs in South Africa, we strongly recommend that you get in touch with one of our professional, expert freight consultants at BCE Global. We welcome you to contact us via email or telephone for more information and advice on all the different types of logistics services we can offer you.
