Exporting to South Africa
South African consumers are keen on British goods, giving British businesses plenty of opportunities. South Africa remains one of Britain’s top trading partners, with over £9.6 billion in bilateral trade as of 2014.
In part this is due to similar cultures and strong historical connections. For those looking to do business in the rest of Africa, South Africa may be a suitable gateway to the rest of the continent.
Our carriers deliver throughout South Africa, from Johannesburg to Durban to Cape Town. Prices start at £29.18 for a 1kg parcel, £43.34 for 5kg, £61.52 for 10kg, and £96.67 for 20kg.
We also offer air freight services, which are especially good for heavier or bulk consignments. Deliver to O.R. Tambo International Airport near Johannesburg (JNB) for as little as £1.89 per kg, for a consignment weighing 100kg or more.
Sending documents to South Africa
Sending documents to South Africa can cost as little as £13.95 if you use our UPS Envelope service, which is a saving of well over 50% when compared to parcel delivery services.
To use the UPS envelope service, your documents must weigh no more than 0.5kg and fit into a UPS branded envelope—we’ll let you know of the dimensions when you try to book.
The service is suitable for important business documents or private correspondence alike. Select “document” from the menu when requesting your quote.
Customs information for South Africa
Your goods will need to go through customs clearance for South Africa, which is outside of the European Union. We make this easy for you by automatically generating your customs invoice alongside your shipping labels. The customs invoice, also known as a packing list, will include descriptions of any goods that you supply during the booking process.
For more information, take a look at carriers’ lists of restrictions for South Africa, or visit the South African Revenue Service (SARS) Customs & Excise website. You should also consult our own list of restricted and prohibited items.
