About Us

When You Want It, We Make It Happen.

A wholly-owned South African enterprise founded on the cornerstones of service and integrity, embracing the progressive philosophy of responsible and committed black empowerment. African Transit is geared to deliver the goods, across the country… around the world.

With more than one hundred years of shipping and financial experience in their combined portfolios, the directors of African Transit bring a wealth of financial knowledge and shipping experience to the boardroom table.

Founded in 1990, African Transit has grown into a robust and modern, independently owned level 2 B-BBEE company with offices in Durban, Johannesburg, Cape Town and Gqeberha.

In 2021 African Transit’s operations were bolstered with the acquisition of the internationally renowned GMA Logistics, which brought a wealth of knowledge, technology and strong relationships with major players in the industry.

African Transit is well known in the freight industry for its honesty and integrity. We prefer working with clients rather than for them, as this has developed long term relationships that streamline communications and processes.
