History

For close to 20 years Excel Cargo Services has been an international freight forwarder and clearing agent.  Established in the city of Kempton Park, Johannesburg, a stone’s throw away from OR Tambo International Airport, it is excellently located for access to all major highways in Gauteng, South Africa

The company started trading from a small railway style house in Rhodesfield, about 80m away from the railway tracks.  During the mid 2000’s the property was expropriated and the land used for the award winning Gautrain rail service.  We moved the business about 1 km away onto a large property, able to house the company and provide room for future growth.

Early 2014 we embarked on some major office renovations and we are happily seated in a fresh modern office.

The company was conceived by Jerry Govender who has more than 35 years experience in the freight industry.  Before founding Excel Cargo Services, he worked at Walon Air, WTC Rand (now UTI), Expeditors and Dateline Forwarding and Waco Logistics.  Through the years Jerry has acquired extensive experience relating to all aspects of the freight industry.

An effective local and international network of reliable agents has been established enabling us to offer a full range of services dealing with all aspects of import and export.  We have moved various commodities, perishable foodstuffs, dangerous goods as well as live animals.  It has been our operational philosophy to maintain a family atmosphere, so we forge active partnerships with our customers to assist them with growth and profitability. We try our utmost to assist our customers where ever possible to make sure they are satisfied with our service levels.  If it means arranging casual workers to help with off loading containers, or a cup of coffee over which to discuss a new business venture, we make ourselves available to our clients.
