You will then need to handle the customs clearance and collect the goods from the port or get your agent in South Africa to deliver the goods to your address in South Africa.
Air Shipping from China to South Africa
For smaller shipments or shipments that are urgent, we can ship from China to South Africa by air. Air courier shipments via DHL, FedEx, TNT, Aramex and local courier normally take about 3-5 days (with DHL normally being a little faster than the rest).

Once the goods have arrived in South Africa, you can either collect the goods from the port or get your local agent to handle the delivery to your address in South Africa.
