Welcome to Watt Africa
The who’s who in Logistics.
Watt Africa specialises in a wide spectrum of consolidation, transport broking and procurement services. With a current fleet of twenty vehicles compromising of four closed 12 tonne (two refrigerated), two tautliner tri-axles, ten tautliner super-links and four flat-deck super-links, Watt Africa is well placed to meet your transportation requirements. In addition, we enjoy strong working relationships with a group of reliable transport operators who we sub-contract where necessary.
There are no scheduled despatch days but we currently despatch, on average, six weekly consolidated loads to Zimbabwe with deliveries to most major centres in the country. Although South Africa to Zimbabwe is our busiest route we do offer services to other countries in Southern Africa.
On our consolidated cargo, we only load once authority has been received from the client's appointed clearing agent confirming that all funds, permits etc. are in place at the port of entry.
We are conveniently situated in Boksburg and through a network of reliable operators we are able to offer our clients collections from any location in South Africa.
We have sufficient warehouse facilities and equipment on site to ensure that all cargo is secured, stored and loaded by our team of well-trained staff.
Watt Africa is registered with SARS as both an exporter and supplier of SADC documentation which reduces duties incurred by the importer. Our team is able to efficiently process all necessary export documentation from our Johannesburg office, speeding up border clearance of cargo. Once goods are despatched, we keep our clients fully up to date on the tracking of their cargo up to the time of delivery.
As an additional service, we offer our clients a procurement facility that can be adapted to meet one's needs on both a business and personal level. Not only are we able to procure goods on behalf of our clients, we are also able to assist with VAT refunds on export as well.
Our staff and offices.
Our complement of dedicated and knowledgeable staff will ensure and maintain excellence across all business relationships, treating each client and trip as the utmost priority. Through our vast experience, particularly in the consolidation business, we are able to easily adjust within an ever-changing climate, with our client’s interests in mind.
In addition to our head office in Johannesburg, we have offices in Harare, Bulawayo and Beit Bridge.
Clearing into Zimbabwe.
Our clients are able to make use of clearing agents of their choice however, we do have an in-house clearing team by the name of Shickers Clearing and Forwarding who are based in Harare and Beit Bridge. While we do not insist on our clients making use of our own clearing agent, we do encourage it in the hope that we can take more control of the clearing process and reduce standing times at the border.
We do strongly suggest that insurance is taken by importers which we can offer at highly competitive rates.
