AGRICULTURE

South Africa has a market-oriented agricultural economy that is highly diversified and includes the production of all the major grains, oilseeds, deciduous and subtropical fruits, sugar, citrus, wine and most vegetables. Citrus, wine, table grapes, corn and wool account for the largest exports by value.

Our services include baling, container stuffing, veterinary export compliance, customs compliance and ocean freight to final destination. Let our experts handle the full supply chain to ensure your product reaches its final destination ready for production.

PRODUCTION AND GROWTH

Our logistics network is strategically positioned to service the requirements of the country’s agricultural market. In addition to exports, our imports, warehousing and distribution network ensures that input supplies such as fertilisers, growth regulators and crop protection liquids are readily available to producers in key production areas.
After years in the industry, our staff are well versed in the regulatory requirements around the import, export and handling of these agriculture-related products.

ANIMAL FEED AND NUTRITION

Meat production forms the backbone of protein production. We understand the time sensitivity of feed and the strict storage requirements to ensure the safety of products that are used in the production of meat. With that in mind, our warehousing facilities and distribution network are designed to ensure a JIT (Just In Time) supply chain to our customers who supply key additives to the feed market in South Africa.

WOOL AND MOHAIR

Currently, South Africa produces approximately 50% of the world’s mohair, mainly in the Eastern Cape and Western Cape regions. Our branch and warehouse located in Gqeberha (formerly Port Elizabeth) is well known for being a market leader in the handling of wool and mohair exports.
Our services include baling, container stuffing, veterinary export compliance, customs compliance and ocean freight to final destination. Let our experts handle the full supply chain to ensure your product reaches its final destination ready for production.
