About Us
Federal Clearing & Forwarding

Federal Clearing & Forwarding is a medium-sized freight forwarding and customs clearing agency with branches in Observatory, Cape Town; Kempton Park, Johannesburg and Victoria Embankment, Durban. Started in 1969 by our late parents Federal Clearing has always been a family business and, naturally, we are proud of who we are and where we come from. Now managed by 3 siblings Federal Clearing is not just another company – we differentiate ourselves from our competitors by our strong values, our ability to build long-lasting relationships and our personal service.

Over the years we have developed trusted business partnerships (with both clients and suppliers). We take the long-term view – steady, dependable and in it for the long run.

At Federal Clearing we’ve always seen our staff as extended family. With owners/managers leading the company and committed loyal staff, we guarantee a professional and personal service.

We place strong emphasis on being a family business and like to think we combine the best of both.
Family: traditional values and people who care for our customers.
Business: commercially orientated to make the relationship win-win.


“Maintain the highest standard of excellence through service delivery to procure new customers and build long term business relationships to ensure the stability and growth of the company.”
