Botswana officially the Republic of Botswana, is a landlocked country in Southern Africa.

As a landlocked country, cargo also needs to be transported overland. That’s why we have an inland rail and road network that connects seamlessly with our ocean vessels.If you wish, we can even pick up your goods from your production site and deliver them to their final destination – wherever that happens to be –to increase the simplicity, transparency and reliability of your supply chain.Your business deserves a shipping partner that brings you closer to markets. This is why at Maersk, we use our container shipping expertise and global network to enable you to realise your business potentials and explore opportunities these regions have to offer.
