to reduce overall logistics costs.

Offering a fully integrated platform, along with a centralised point of contact for the customer.

Welcome and thank you for visiting our Website. Our aim is to provide you with a quality service whatever cargo you have to move globally.

Atlantic Forwarding’s core competence has been to develop long-term business alliances with our clients by customizing distribution solutions that assist them in meeting their business objectives. We have enjoyed sustained growth mainly due to our reputation for quality and commitment to our customers.

Atlantic Forwarding has recently partnered up with Nucleus, thereby integrating key logistical processes, such as transport, warehousing, inventory management and customer service, to reduce overall logistics costs. It also offers outsourced, turnkey or joint venture logistics management services.

As a 4th Party Logistics provider (4PL), Nucleus adopts a holistic approach to a customers’ supply chain needs – we are able to customise a distribution platform according to your specific requirements and distribution volumes, most importantly, implement and operate this plan, ensuring the benefits are fully realised

Nucleus is able to achieve this by integrating the client’s needs and optimising the functions of the supply chain, leveraging any strategic opportunities. By optimising the entire supply chain, we can deliver savings on working and fixed capital, convert fixed overheads to variable costs, eliminate the risk of obsolete stock and reduce the cost of delivery

We are able to offer a fully integrated platform, along with a centralised point of contact for the customer, with the added unique responsibility of monitoring supply chain performance.

We also take operational responsibility and accountability for the ongoing implementation and management of solutions. Clients are freed to focus on their core business, devoting their resources to doing what they do best.


Airfreight Imports

Setting up and monitoring the Purchase Order and arranging the transport from your supplier through customs clearance in SA and includes final delivery to you.

Sea Freight Imports

The same process catering for Full Container Load, (FCL), Less Than Container Load (LCL) and Break-Bulk consignments by sea.

Airfreight Exports

Depending on the Terms of Sale you conclude (e.g. EXW, FOB, FCA, CPT, DAP ) so we work with you to the point of handover ensuring that you maintain a competitive edge in the market in terms of delivery time, landed cost, documentation and communication.

Sea Freight Exports

The same process as Airfreight but catering for all sea-freight modes.

International Trade Consulting

Analysis of freight files over many years has highlighted how often importers and exporters overlook the complex legal, risk, cost, and time related implications of moving cargo internationally. We offer seminars and personal consulting on the key ways of reducing your trading risks and costs.

Estimating and Landed Costs

It is important that you are able to calculate your costs before you enter into an international purchase/sale contract. Our comprehensive estimating system enables you to trade knowing your costs in advance. Similarly once your goods land, we can assist you to cost your items accurately as an extension of the customs clearance process.

Marine Insurance

Risks are part of the reality of international trade. Our Marine Insurance package ensures that cover attaches and remains in place to fully match the terms of the International Purchase or Sale contract agreed between you and your overseas trade partners.  Adequate cover is provided to protect you fully in the case of an insurance event. We also manage the administration in the event of a claim.
