Shipping to Tanzania

With offices in Tanga and Zanzibar, we have been connecting Tanzanian businesses to key global markets since 1997.

Whether you are shipping standard containers, refrigerated goods or oversized cargo, we have the local expertise and global network you need to get it to its destination. Our regular weekly services connect Tanzania and other East African countries to our vast ocean fleet. From here, the rest of the world is just a short hop away.

Full inland service

Shipping is not just about ships. Most cargo also needs to be transported inland, often at both ends of its journey. We provide a full inland service to give you a smooth connection to and from any inland destination, including Rwanda, Zambia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Burundi and Uganda. If you wish, we can even pick up your goods from your production site and deliver them to their final destination to increase the simplicity and reliability of your supply chain.

Advanced e-commerce solutions

To make your shipping even easier and more cost-effective, we provide a full suite of e-commerce solutions that let you handle all your shipping needs online, from instantly booking and tracking shipments to submitting Verified Gross Mass information and much more.
