Africa Gateway


"All across Africa and going beyond ports"

A focus on African Countries and Indian Ocean islands

In South Africa, we fully grasp the uniqueness and constraints of operational conditions locally and within the African continent. Through long-standing partnerships with our agents we have extensive coverage on the African continent. Currently our African network spans 74 offices across 44 countries. This footprint allows us to offer a wide range of regional and local services throughout Africa.
KWE has identified countries in which we plan to establish our own branded offices due to ever increasing demand and volumes moving to these countries. All services are controlled from a central point at our head office in Johannesburg via a dedicated team of trade and operations experts – our Africa Desk.
