Robertson Freight is a small to medium International Freight Forwarder, based in Cape Town. They are well equipped to meet the ever changing and increasing needs and demands of their customers.
“We are a duly registered and customs accredited ‘Customs Clearing and Forwarding’ agent, with custom accounts throughout South Africa,” says a proud Neil Robertson, director at Robertson Freight.
Neil always had the dream to start his own “family” business. Neil approached his brother and current partner, Brian for a “loan” to start a business. Brian, being a director at his previous business, also felt that urge that was far too strong to resist and one month later he joined the startling business.
“It was based solely on the knowledge that we could make it work, with hard work and determination; a huge risk at the time, but a risk well worth it 17 years down the line, says a fulfilled Robertson.
Robertson added that they consider themselves as being an extension of their customers.
“We are a division of each of our customers businesses. By offering our customers the services that we do, we are assisting them to offer their customers better services or products.”
The services range from sea and air freight forwarding for both import and export, as well as all the value additions, such as third party logistics, multi modal (air sea / sea air), door-to-door, customs clearance and various other supply chain activities.
The company also offers a fully integrated service from a committed team, who meet every related need.
Brian has been in the industry for 44 years and Neil for 32 years, between them they have amassed 76 years.
“Shipping is in our Blood. There is probably nothing else we can do as well as we do shipping. Perhaps it is all we know,” says Neil smiling.
