We would like to thank the team who took care of our boxes in Cape Town, they were friendly and efficient. The team in Mauritius also went out of their way to make dealing with customs easier.

I've had nothing but excellent experiences with ShipChain. Communication is superb all the way through the process, and the quoting is transparent and efficient with very good rates. After having frustrating experiences with getting shipping set up for my business with other shipping companies, dealing with Sebastian at ShipChain was a breath of fresh air.

This being the first time that I have imported goods from China and after having hunted around for a shipping and clearing company that would be responsive and were keen to give me the service I needed , I was extremely happy with the service I received from Rezak Parker at Shipchain. He was aware that I needed more support than normal and he made me feel confident that my goods were in good hands. Thanks very much.
