Durban port container clearing

Shipping guide for containers

    Shipping from China to Zimbabwe
    Before paying seller, get written confirmation from seller that your truck will be delivered to Transnet terminals at Durban Port which has cheaper fees. Ensure truck has at least 1/4 tank fuel, is driveable, batteries are new and fully charged, accessories are tagged and recorded with photo proof. Please make sure we have your truck documents at least 7 days before ship arrives, this is to avoid Port penalties and late charges. Lastly, avoid engaging many service providers because chaos is expensive, select a quote that covers clearing and transport from one service provider.

    Shipping from China to Zambia
    Importing a container from China to Zambia is high risk when you dont have realible clearing agents. We suggest you import your container through Durban port. Your container will transit through Durban, Beitbridge and Chirundu which is a reliable and efficient route. From Chirundu it takes 1hour for delivery to Lusaka. When buying from China, we suggest you pay for a Full Containter Load (FCL), which is a full, sealed container with your goods ONLY! From China, your goods may be opened by Tax authorities, SARS in South Africa or ZIMRA in Zimbabwe. If there are any missing items its easy to track and hold Tax authorities accountable. Some people when importing from China to Zambia prefer to share a container with other clients. Avoid a shared container (LCL) by all means. You run a high risk of missing items, your goods being delayed because other clients did not clear in time or the entire container being detained because other clients have paperwork missing. Avoid LCL at all costs. Lastly, avoid engaging many service providers because chaos is expensive, select a quote that covers clearing and transport from one service provider.

    Shipping from China to Lesotho / Swaziland
    When importing from China to Lesotho or Swaziland, we suggest you use Durban port. We also suggest you avoid a shared container (LCL) but opt for a Full Container Load (FCL). This way your goods will be cleared faster with no items missing. Lastly, avoid engaging many service providers because chaos is expensive, select a quote that covers clearing and transport from one service provider.
