Importing to Zambia

You have options of using Durban port in South Africa, Walvis Bay port in Namibia or Dar Er Salaam port in Tanzania.

Walvis Bay Port


Advantages
When importing from UK or USA its ideal to use Walvis Bay port in Namibia. Most ships pass through here first before Durban port, saving 2 weeks or more. Walvis Bay port offers lower customs clearance fees and has faster clearance times.
Disadvantages
Not many have happy stories of driving from Walvis Bay. It ends up being safer & cheaper to use a car carrier. The cost of fuel for a 1600KM journey is $250(Toyota Hilux) plus driver $500. From Walvis Bay one drives through desert area with towns far apart. A breakdown can easily translate to minimum cost of $400 for mechanic & breakdown service excluding parts. Furthermore the long distance drive can wear down drivers putting your un-insured vehicle at risk of accident. We recommend you engage us to do your vehicle Customs Clearing and transport it to Gaberone or Plumtree border. Our car carriers are fully insured, in the event your vehicle is damaged or lost whilst in transit, you are 100% covered.

Dar Es Salaam Port


Advantages
When importing from Japan some prefer Dar Es Salaam. This port has the lowest customs clearance fees ranging from $150 upwards. Clearance also tends to be faster. Then there is the tempting drive from Tanzania to Chirundu 2100KM or 3days
Disadvantages
Again there are few happy stories of driving from Dar Es Salaam. It ends up being safer & cheaper to use a car carrier. The cost of fuel for a 2100KM journey is $300(Honda Fit) plus driver $500, total $800. Breakdowns are common with minimum cost of $250 excluding parts. Some breakdowns are fatal, engine knock, suspension breakdown even tyre bursts due to high speeds. The long distance drive can wear down drivers putting your un-insured vehicle at risk of a write off accident. This drive is for man of steel not ordinary drivers. We recommend you engage us to do your vehicle Customs Clearing and transport it to Zimbabwe Chirundu border. Our car carriers are fully insured, in the event your vehicle is damaged or lost whilst in transit, you are 100% covered.

Durban Port


Advantages
When importing from Japan traditionally Durban port is the preferred port. Everything is efficient in Durban, from Customs to delivery. Its cheaper to buy new tyres, battery, seat covers, service kit for your car before reaching Zimbabwe. Our crews in Durban handle your import faster and professionaly, its A game
Disadvantages
Ex Japan /UK/US imports can not be driven in South Africa, automatically its transported via a carrier. Beware of this, some car carrier companies steal clients batteries, radios etc adding unnecessary inconvenience to clients. This can offset you $400 or more. Also it takes long from UK to reach Durban port. We recommend you engage us as we do not temper with clients cars. Should you request, we can buy your car new tyres and batteries before delivery to Zimbabwe Beitbridge border. Our car carriers are fully insured, in the event your vehicle is damaged or lost whilst in transit, you are 100% covered.
