Total Forwarding Ltd was founded in 2006.  We have built an enviable reputation during the past 8 years as a reliable, efficient and fast freight forwarding service to both the commercial and private shipping sectors. Ideally located in the dock area of Tilbury, Essex we are specialist African Shipping Agents and experts in our field.  We are able to arrange shipment of your goods and vehicles to all major ports in Africa including Nigeria, Freetown, Sierra Leone,  Ghana, Kenya, Tema, Lagos and Mombasa.

On our site you will find a wealth of information regarding shipping and freight forwarding to and from Africa covering all aspects of the process. Our friendly approach to our clients ensures a personal touch whilst maintaining a professional service independent from any shipping trade or carrier.  This ensures that our clients’ interests drive our business forward as we provide flexible logistic solutions from the start of our relationship.

Freight forwarding and African shipping
With an expertise in freight forwarding and African shipping, we regularly handle a diverse range of goods from large consignments of stock, cars, trucks, industrial and agricultural machinery to fragile items and equipment.  Whether you want to export one item or many, as a one off consignment or on a regular basis, our highly trained, professional team is available to assist you.

Despite insurance cover that will cover loss or damage we understand the importance of never allowing mistakes to happen since time is money in your business as well as ours.

  • Customs paperwork
  • Standard shipping notes
  • Bills of Exchange
  • Collection and delivery notes
  • CMR documentation
  • Preference Certificates

It’s not always what you know but who you know in shipping
We have a committed and dedicated team of agents together with the latest technology so that our clients are regularly updated with the location of their goods in real time.
