Intercontinental Shipping was established in the late 1990's as a clearing and forwarding company, moving cargo across all parts of the world. Our goal is to provide our Clients with quality, value and the convenience of door-to-door service using one trustworthy and accountable partner from beginning to end.

Over the past decade, the company has prospered and grown, establishing operational offices in Pretoria, Cape Town and Durban, while expanding our focus to include the clearing and forwarding of reefer cargo globally.

All customs clearing and forwarding is handled out of our Pretoria offices. Our shipping and logistics operations are close to the ports in Durban and Cape Town, facilitating a smooth and efficient flow of product through the logistical process.

We are a long-standing member of The South African Association of Freight Forwarders (Membership No. SN4223) and support their mission "To maintain the highest ethical and professional standards and to be mindful of the need to foster public trust and confidence in the forwarding and clearing industry."
