International freight forwarding
To bridge the complex divide between the delivery of products from source to end destination requires extensive experience and specialist knowledge. As a freight forwarder, Tanfreight Africa Ltd is an expert and experienced 'know-how' partner in commercial matters, modes of transport, import and export processes and regulations, as well as an effective route planner, from supplier to delivery destination.
Air freight remains the premium form of transport when the requirement is for rapid international delivery, with punctual arrival times for order fulfilment and product delivery. With vast experience in the industry, Tanfreight Africa ensures quick delivery using its air freight service. The company has airport-based agents in Lusaka, Ndola and Livingstone. Freight chartering is also available.
Tanfreight Africa Ltd owns one of the largest, most modern fleet of trucks in Zambia, with freight handling equipment to match. This enables the company to handle virtually any logistics request. It provides standard truck transportation, as well as handling and transportation of containers. All kinds of cargo can be moved – both in gauge and out of gauge (i.e. cargo too large to fit standard containers).
Tanfreight Africa enjoys excellent relationships with most major road transporters and agents operating in the Southern African market. This makes Tanfreight a dominant player in the market.
