Brand new Direct Service Launched

Posted: 30 Jul 2018

Ecuworldwide Namibia is pleased to announce a new direct shipping service between Shanghai and Walvis Bay. This shipping service is focused on non-hazardous less than container load (LCL) cargo between China and Namibia. This means businesses or people wishing to import goods from China can now do so in smaller quantities, instead of having to fill a whole container.

According to the local Ecuworldwide Business Development officer, Monique Marais, the new direct Shanghai to Walvis Bay service is a first for Namibia and will make shipping easier and hassle-free. “It’s a direct service with no double handling. So clients immediately enjoy better rates and peace of mind that we are in full control of the shipment until it is delivered to you. We are especially eager to assist businesses, freight forwarders who often import smaller palette or boxed goods from China. Now there is an easier and cost-effective way of doing so. We take care of everything; all the paperwork, customs clearances and delivery right to your doorstep,” she added.

“We do LCL cargo to anywhere in the world, and we will help you package a cost effective solution to ship smaller parcels more regularly. We are especially geared for the mining, industrial, construction, retail, energy, infrastructure development and agricultural sectors that may need to have smaller goods delivered within the shortest time frame at affordable rates. That’s why people don’t say they ‘ship it’. They say they ‘Ecu it’!”
