Into Africa!

Origin is excited to announce the launch of our services for onward deliveries via South Africa in conjunction with our agent Paccon Logistics, handling FCL / breakbulk & RORO cargoes.

With South Africa’s east coast and particularly Durban and Richards Bay being the main entry ports for the north-south corridor, it’s no coincidence that the Southern African landlocked neighbours such as Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia and DRC feature heavily in the daily activities. We can also offer clients an alternative inland routing to these countries via Walvis Bay. Why not get in touch today to find out more by calling 0161 492 1772 or emailing
