Timshir Freight Services understands that different cargos are not handled or transported in the same way. Find out how we handle our cargo
Timshir Freight Services currently uses road transportation as its method of moving your freight. We are however looking into Air transportation and Rail transportation. These will be available soon and our clients will be able to choose their preferred method of transport on any consignment.
Road transport is a method widely used and accepted to be the default mode of transportation by most people. The advantages of road transport is that it is cost effective and allows you to transport goods faster compared to rail and sea transport. Road transport is the only method that is accessible in all areas of Africa, even the most remote areas.
DOOR TO DOOR DELIVERY
At Timshir Freight Services we offer door to door delivery of goods. That means the recipient does not have to worry about delivery time and place of delivery or if they will be able to make it to the delivery point on time
We simplify your life by taking care of all your freight needs and making sure that you can take care of the more important aspects and day to day running of your business.
We insure goods upon request by the client which obviously adjusts the Freight Quotation/Invoice simultaneously. We currently insure such consignments with OUTSURANCE a reputable insurance company in South Africa.
