Shipping to Africa’s Growing Economies

Did you know Africa is home to six of the 15 fastest growing economies in the world? It’s true, and those economies are looking for high-quality, competitively priced goods, mainly from the United States.


Examples of the top commodities being shipped to these high-growth areas include cars, medical equipment, construction trucks, oil drilling equipment, and agricultural machinery. You’ll even see some heavy equipment such as bulldozers, compactors and backhoe loaders. Why the increase in shipments? It’s simple really: these growing economies don’t manufacture these items on their own.


There’s also a big demand for commodities such as household goods and furniture, as well as food and beverages. As the need for these items grows, more businesses are looking for dependable ways to transport their goods to Africa. Here at Ship Overseas, we offer a variety of vehicle, cargo, and container shipping to suit your needs.


Whether you’re shipping household items, furniture, cars or something else, you need access to a reliable shipper who can provide full cargo shipping via barrels, drums, boxes, pallets, bales, and more utilizing container shipments that are loaded onto shared containers. Those containers are then sent to your destination port and unloaded, where delivery arrangements have been made to take them from there. 


We provide both LCL (Less than full load) and FCL (Full container load services) Container shipments.


  • LCL Shared Container Shipping Overseas: This international ocean freight service is for shipping boxed, crated or palletized cargo that can’t fill an entire 20- or 40-foot sea freight container. This is a good option, because you pay only for the space you use, not the whole container. You can choose this option when shipping both types of freight: commercial cargo or household goods/personal effects.

  • FCL Commercial & Household Shipping Overseas International shipping: By contrast, this is an ocean freight service for international ocean freight shipments of cargo where you use the entire ocean freight container, either 20 or 40 foot.
