Our belief is that effective management of the ocean freight process should be a value-added activity, with a positive impact on your competitive position in terms of availability and cost. Working in close co-operation with Toll Global Forwarding offices worldwide, we ensure that documentation relating to your shipments is complete, correct and received in South Africa in good time for timely customs clearance. At any stage of the transit, you can check on the shipment progress through our track & trace system or you are welcome to ask us to check for you. This information allows you to plan for the arrival of your goods for marketing and cash flow purposes. Customs tariff experts ensure you pay the lowest legitimate rates of duty and carefully check all shipping line charges and other disbursements. Historic management information equips you to facilitate ongoing improvements in your shipping methods. You can review the suitability of current packing methods to reduce damage and improve your risk profile. You can check the transit times achieved according to choice of routing and carrier. You can also identify opportunities for cost-savings through shipment consolidation.

OCEAN EXPORTS

Taking advantage of export trade opportunities is often as much dependent on the quality of service as the quality of goods. Specifically, overseas buyers evaluate competing offers from suppliers also on the basis of the cost and timely arrival of goods. Ocean Freight is the mode of transport that offers you cost competitiveness but given South Africa’s geographic remoteness – it has to be tightly and carefully managed to meet delivery deadlines. This applies whether you are moving full or part container loads or breakbulk shipments. That is why TWALAGLOBAL CARGO will negotiate with ocean carriers and providers of landside transportation to offer you the most cost-effective routings and tariffs in the light of your time-window. We also bring to bear expertise on packing methods to reduce costly dead freight while ensuring goods are properly secured against damage and pilferage. An important additional benefit is an improvement in your risk profile and insurance costs. Additionally, we are aware of special incentives that may apply to certain trades and offer our guidance free of charge. On the other side of the ocean, our international partner Toll Global Forwarding takes care of all documentary and delivery requirements so that goods reach your customer on time and intact. You are able to keep your customer informed of shipment progress and arrival estimates, thanks to our advanced Freight Operating and Accounting System.
