About
Atlantic Forwarding

Introduction

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. If there is anything you need, you can shortcut the process by clicking either of our names and we will respond to you as quickly as we possibly can. Lisa Fairbrother and Andrew Roberts (Partners)

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.

History

In 2002, three companies operating in the Western Cape merged to form Atlantic Forwarding Cape (Pty) Ltd. This has enabled us to become a niche player in the logistics field, offering global import and export clearing and forwarding services as well as domestic and over border transport. The accent has always been on providing professional, but cost effective services by acting as an extension of the customer’s management team.

What differentiates us from our competitors?

As an Atlantic customer, our sole objective is to assist you in landing your imports and exports timeously, cost effectively and with a minimum unplanned risks or events.

How will we achieve this?

  • By providing you with competitive services measured in terms of rates and costs.
  • By communicating closely with you, your suppliers/customers and other players in the logistics chain at all times
  • By implementing a set of quality standards that meet your expectations and by reviewing our performance against them regularly.
  • By reviewing your “4 key contracts in International Trade” and setting up policies and procedures that will ensure that the many pitfalls facing the importer and exporter are pre-empted.
  • By auditing every shipment file and reporting back to you on opportunities to improve efficiencies.
  • By working with you to eliminate weaknesses that are highlighted during the joint review process.

Services

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.
