Headquartered in Cape Town with offices in Port Elizabeth, Durban, East London and Johannesburg, Maersk South Africa (Pty) Ltd. has been connecting South African businesses to key markets around the world since 1992, via a comprehensive road and rail network that joins seamlessly with our global ocean fleet.

We have the expertise, global presence and local knowledge to get your cargo to its destination on time – wherever in the world that happens to be.

Connecting you to key markets

With sales offices and teams of highly skilled specialists in locations such as Lesotho, Botswana, Swaziland, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi, Mozambique, Mauritius, Madagascar, Seychelles and the Comoros, we are well placed to propel South Africa’s businesses towards greater growth.

Whether you need to import or export standard container shipments, reefers or oversized cargo, we ensure that you have the perfect transport solution to connect your business with key regional and global markets.

Door-to-door service

Shipping is not just about ships. Most cargo also needs to be transported inland, often at both ends of its journey. That’s why we offer a full-service solution. With an inland service network that connects seamlessly with our ocean vessels, we can 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.
