OUR MISSION: To Proudly Provide Creative Solutions That Fulfill Our Customer's Unique Demands
Our Services


We have proven to be one of the best Transport and Distribution Management service providers, as agreed by all of our clients, with specialities in the following categories:

Road Networking

The company offers the best solutions in transport and distribution throughout Southern Africa, including Over-Border, ensuring that the customer’s demands are met personally.


Our clients get more than just warehousing space: they get targeted, focused fulfillment warehousing designed to provide an outsourced warehouse solution that works for each company's specific needs. We work one-on-one with each client, providing convenience, flexibility and cost-effective warehousing management services to a variety of industries.

Project Cargo

Project Cargo Management entails the ability to co-ordinate, expedite and monitor shipments to a particular job site, meeting specific deadlines, and at thea same time arranging cost effective solutions for large scale imports.

Bulk mineral
and container handling

As an added benefit to clients, Trans-Med Shipping offers the services for the releases from Portnet through the processing of Container Terminal Orders (CTO’s). The CTO’s are processed promptly, ensuring that there are no delays or “hold-ups” for upliftment containers from the Durban Container Terminal.


Rail-based container transportation is a segment of our business. This entails loading and transporting containers to the requested destination. We provide rail container transportation both as a standalone service and also as part of an integrated logistics solution, typically combined with last mile delivery, terminal handling and freight forwarding services.

Heavy lift
and Rigging

Our approach is to provide proactive management through all aspects of a project; from dock/ground analysis for load distribution, to tug and barge chartering, complete with sea fastening design and stability calculations.

Cargo Inspection

Trans-Med Shipping eases the burden of cargo inspection by providing a service whereby a trained employee is based on site to conduct the necessary inspections.
