International Moving

Joel Transport is a qualified International mover, and over the years we have successfully assisted many clients relocate from and to South Africa. Joel Transport’s success is based on the “get it right first time” principal, where the tenets of correct advice, mode of shipment, choice of shipping lines and control of the entire shipping process is practiced every day.

Groupage Services

This service is offered to more common destinations, where a number of small consignments are collected and consolidated to fill a container. Thus, once sufficient cargo has been collected the container is booked and shipped; resulting in cost savings, however, the allowance for consolidation time must be taken into consideration.

LCL Service

This service is similar to the groupage mode of shipping, where cargo is collected crated, consolidated and shipments are usually dispatched every 30 days. This results in a faster more convenient solution, with a higher cost.

FCL Service

For larger loads where we pack load everything into one container, either a 6 meter, 12 meter or 12 meter high cube container is utilized. This is the safest, most efficient shipping method when a larger load is in question.

Air Freights

Many clients require essential items air freighted. This method is safe and fast when goods require an expedited delivery.
