Disbursement Financing

Turners Shipping is able to offer Finance to cover the clearing and forwarding costs either on a short or extended term basis. Terms of up to 120 days may be negotiated subject to credit approval.

Customs Tariff Consultations

South Africa has one of the more complex customs systems in the world. Some of our tariff consultants are experienced ex-customs officers with years of experience both in customs and in the freight forwarding industry.
