Turners Trade Finance Start to Finish Import Solutions


Turners Shipping offers a Finance and Logistics package that has been designed with the South African importers and exporters in mind. We have brought our strength in the freight forwarding and customs clearing business and combined it with solid financial backing into a single product/service offering.

Turners Shipping is proud to offer an innovative ‘Start-to-Finish’ finance facility. This bespoke service has been developed by combining the Trade Finance element with the Freight Forwarding and Customs Clearing components delivering a comprehensive logistics supply chain package.

Turners Shipping has been in the Customs Clearing and Freight Forwarding business for over 120 years, so we can safely say we know this business inside and out.

Drawing on our experience and strengths and combining them with secure financial backing, we are in the unique position of being able to offer an all-inclusive service for importers and exporters.

Whilst there are a number of financial institutions who provide importers and exporters with Trade Finance facilities, they are generally only concerned about the financial component of the transaction.

We believe that there are enormous benefits for the importer/exporter should they utilise a service provider that offers a facility which combines both the trade finance and the international logistics requirements.

The concept behind our Trade Finance facility is to combine the financing of imports/exports and the logistics of getting the products here, into a single integrated system.

As such, Turners Shipping would provide the following:

  • Financing
  • Supplier Payment
  • Management
  • Cargo Tracking & Shipment Status Reporting
  • Freight Forwarding
  • Customs Clearing
  • Communication & Reporting
  • Invoicing & Costing
