Exporting to South Africa
With our TG Express Direct service, you can send a parcel door-to-door from just £17.48 for a 0.5kg parcel, £22.25 for 1kg, and £41.33 for 3kg. For even further cost reduction, you can drop off at one of our warehouses instead.
We also have exclusive rates for parcels to Johannesburg, from £14.90 for 0.5kg, £18.08 for 1kg, £30.80 for 3kg, and £43.52 for 5kg.
Sending something heavier? We have a range of courier services for parcels up to 70kg, in both express and economy flavours. We also offer air freight services. Deliver to O.R. Tambo International Airport near Johannesburg (JNB) for as little as £2.03 per kg, for consignments weighing 100kg or more.
Sending documents to South Africa
We offer special document-only services from carriers including TNT and UPS, up to a maximum weight of 0.5kg, costing less than the equivalent parcel delivery services.
However, you can also send urgent documents with TG Express Direct, which may work out cheaper door-to-door, and we have economy services for non-urgent documents.
These services are suitable for business documents and private correspondence alike. Just 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 our carriers’ lists of restrictions for South Africa, or visit the South African Revenue Service (SARS) Customs & Excise website. You can also consult our own list of restricted and prohibited items.
Transit times to South Africa
Transit times for parcels sent to South Africa are usually around 2 days with express services. Economy services can take up to 4-6 days. For parcels collected from or delivered to remote areas, there may be additional time in transit.
For a more accurate estimate, please use our carrier-specific transit time calculators and enter your collection and destination postcodes.
Sending from South Africa to the UK?
We also offer import services for sending parcels to the UK from other territories worldwide. We have a growing number of options including UPS, TNT and TG Express.
We generate the necessary documentation for all orders, which can be forwarded to the collection point if needed.
