The Grindrod team is exceptional at pulling together our in-house logistics capabilities and sourcing specialist service providers to deliver on the most complex operations. From transporting locomotives across borders by road and sea, delivering equipment on specialist barges for the expansion of berths and dredging of the Maputo Port channel, beach landing of project cargo in East Africa to the delivery of once-off containerised cargo across borders. No project or cargo type is too big or complex for the team to handle – from the planning stage to the delivery, including all logistical aspects and documentation.

We are passionate about combining service offering across the group and looking for the most direct and efficient corridor to transport cargo to its destination.
