Company Profile

Forwardair Ltd is much more than getting a piece of freight from one point to another. The Council of Logistics Management defines logistics as that part of the supply chain process that plans, implements, and controls the efficient, effective flow and storage of goods, services, and related information from the point of origin to the point of consumption in order to meet customers' requirements.

Our job is to make sure that from raw material to finished goods sitting on the retail shelf, we provide the critical services and information necessary to give our clients a competitive advantage in the management of their supply chains.

Why Choose Forwardair as your partner in freight?

Experience and service quality

The main advantage of Forwardair is its highly qualified personnel and knowledge of customers’ interests. Unlike other forwarding companies presented in Tanzania, our company is the most experienced in Tanzania and has wide network of offices and representatives all over the world, which notably enhances the quality of services, decreases cargo transit time and allows maintenance of full cargo control all along the route.

Fair prices

Having set a strategy of maintaining long-term relationship with customers and partners rather than achievement of maximum profit, Forwardair is able to offer rates below competitors while guaranteeing high quality of service.

Concept of Complex Service

Forwardair adheres to “One Stop Shop” concept. This concept enables offering full service connected with import and export of cargo to/from Tanzania. The service package includes: full customs clearance, freight forwarding by any kinds of transport mode from door-to-door, project and complex cargo, tracing, port service, insurance, and warehouse services.
