About Us

Aviocean Natal was started in Durban, North Coast of South Africa in 1988. It is a privately owned independent family Close Corporation, with family members personally responsible and involved in the daily activities of the business. Our experienced staff, some of whom has been with the company from inception, are passionate about the freight industry, and go to extra lengths to provide professional and personal services to all customers/ agents. Although Aviocean has a wide spread of services, the company also ensures a personalised service, with management very involved and using a hands-on approach.

Aviocean Natal has expanded over the past years to cover all major ports of South Africa. Aviocean Natal have offices in Durban - Aviocean Natal (Head Office), in Cape Town - Aviocean Cape Town and in Johannesburg - Avio Clearing & Forwarding. We are strategically situated for easy access to the ports, airports, container terminals, customs offices, port authorities and most major shipping lines.

Aviocean Natal, Aviocean Cape Town and Avio Clearing & Forwarding continually aim to grow the link between agent and customer in order to offer services to suit individual requirements. This includes providing rapid processing of documents and a communication link between agents, buyers and suppliers.

We are members of the Chamber Of Commerce, South African Association of Freight Forwarders, National Regulator and Customs and Excise accredited. We are registered as customs brokers in Durban, Johannesburg and Cape Town, and operate deferments with SA Revenue Services in all regions.


Our Objective

We believe that in order to succeed in today’s ever-changing market, we need to offer good value for money, proactive management, integrity, communication and big company benefits but with small company personalised service levels. Emphasis is on customer relationships and service and our objective is long-term development rather than short-term profit.
