Find a Freight Forwarder in South Africa

Find a freight forwarder in South Africa with our comprehensive listing. South Africa is located at the southern tip of Africa and has a more developed infrastructure than surrounding countries. It has six commercial seaports that not only accept shipments for South Africa but also act as ports for landlocked countries such as Botswana and Eswatini.
Durban
Durban is the largest facility in South Africa and has the highest vessel traffic in all of Africa, with over 3,200 sea-going vessel calls in 2019. It has 58 berths and handles 60% of all container cargo in South Africa. Vessels may anchor in the outer bay and have cargo offloaded to smaller vessels for delivery to storage facilities.
Richards Bay
This port handles coal at five of its six berths. Richard’s Bay supports large vessels with drafts over 40 feet. Its 2020 commercial cargo was 92 million (MT), with about 66% being coal.
Elizabeth
The port of Elizabeth allows vessels with a 40-foot draw to dock in one of its 11 berths. Six berths support breakbulk handling, two bulk ore, and three are designated for containers. During a three-year period, a little over 1,000 vessels used the port. Larger vessels can wait in the bay while cargo is offloaded to reduce weight.
Cape Town
Cape Town is one of the oldest African ports dating back to 1652. It has 34 berths, with a few designated for ship repair and maintenance. It can serve six container vessels as well as offer attractions for pleasure-seeking arrivals. The port handles about 10 million MT annually, although the traffic has slowed because of congestion.
Saldanha
The Port of Saldanha, or Saldanha Bay, is a fast-growing iron-ore-focused port. Iron Ore exports are accepted at two berths; one for crude oil and three for MPT. The maximum berth length is 1,000 feet with a water depth of 77 feet. The port has a semi-automatic convey system for loading cargo. It uses three hydraulic rams and no crane operations. Cargo statistics average around 60 million MT annually. It operates 365 days for iron ore handling and aims to be the largest container terminal in South Africa. It currency handles ships with a 12,500 TEU.
East London
East London is actually a riverport located at the Buffalo River. It has ten operational berths for river vessels with drafts no greater than 32 feet. It supports containers, general cargo, liquid, and bulk loading. The port has three roll-on, roll-off terminals to accommodate the Mercedes Benz factory that exists nearby. The port also uses a conveyor handling system and has plans to expand its operations to address an increase in vehicle production.
