FULL CONTAINERS LOADS (FCL) OCEANFREIGHT

Consignees choose FCL transport when they have enough cargo to fill an entire shipping container. The most common choices are 20’ long and 40’ long containers. Yellow Jersey Logistics specialises in containerised transportation and utilise the Johannesburg to Durban corridor. Our competent staff will monitor the arrival and discharge of all import containers and will keep track of stack dates for export containers.

FULL CONTAINER DEPOT

As a value-added service, Yellow Jersey Logistics offers the client a short-term storage solution at our independent container depot FREE OF CHARGE. This is beneficial when your client requires a staggered delivery, or if external factors such as port or weather delays are experienced and you need to store containers without incurring any additional costs.

Having our own high security depot at our disposal means that customers can pack exports before stacks open and use the depot for transit storage. Once stacks are open, containers will then be transferred to Durban into stacks.

The container depot has 24/7 security patrols, gate access control and camera surveillance. It is also equipped with 30 meters high mast LED lighting poles.

SIDE LOADER RIGGING

We have a Side Loader trailer (sub-frame with cranes) with the ability to load 30ton
Containers. The Side Loader is well suited for urban areas to unload/load containers and
some even in narrow spaces. The versatility of the unit with its ability to handle 20’, 40’
containers has benefitted both Our company and Our customers.
Some of the functionalities of the Side Loader include:

  • Easy to Manoeuvre from Side Loader to trailer and vice versa
  • Trailer-to-trailer transfer
  • Double stacking functionality (When loading or unloading a container from on top of another container)
  • The ability for the trailer driver to unload the container quickly without assistance from
    additional personnel or equipment
  • Large outreach of 3.9 metre whilst still being capable of performing a double stacking
    function on a 9.6ft container and keeping a low profile

LESS THAN CONTAINER LOADS (LCL) OCEANFREIGHT

The most obvious reason for choosing LCL is because a shipment does not have enough volume to fill a standard container. LCL allows smaller businesses to transport the supply they need to meet consumers’ demands, rather than shipping a larger quantity of inventory that may significantly exceed demand. Yellow Jersey Logistics monitors the unpacking of containers at the bonded SARS container depots. The operations department will arrange for the upliftment of the cargo immediately after unpacking.

BREAKBULK AIRFREIGHT

Yellow Jersey Logistics also specialises in breakbulk transport, structured and capable of accommodating freight of various dimensions and weight. As part of the service we will oversee the arrival of flights and monitor the check in of all cargo, ensuring that daily collections and deliveries are made well on time from O.R Tambo International Airport. All our drivers are issued with IVS permits, so goods can be traced and also assuring NO interruptions throughout the transport process. Our reliable breakbulk transport system is designed to meet the fast-paced delivery demands of our clients.
