AMI’s click2ship Express Imports makes South African debut

August 11, 2017: The  trade-only airfreight and express wholesaler AMI has announced the South African launch of its all-inclusive online service, click2ship Express Imports.

The new service is the imports counterpart of click2ship Express Exports, which was launched in South Africa in 2014.

click2ship Express Imports provides online quotes and bookings for imports from any location in the world. Prices include collection at origin, Customs export entries, freight, Customs clearance on arrival, and local delivery from airport to agent or consignee.

The new service is aimed both at freight agents at point of origin, and those in South Africa.

AMI’s VP Africa, Milton French, commented, “Imports currently accounts for some 20 per cent of AMI’s turnover in South Africa, so the potential to grow imports business is considerable. click2ship Express Imports is simple to use, provides attractive rates based on quality operators, and saves agents having to conduct time-consuming research into multiple suppliers in order to construct a quote. We believe this represents an appealing package.”

French added that he expects click2ship express imports to echo the success of its exports counterpart, which now handles around 10 per cent of AMI’s exports business.

AMI said that the appearance and functionality of the click2ship Express Imports portal is deliberately based  closely on the exports site, so that existing export customers will find it familiar and easy to use. click2ship Express Imports provides global coverage, and is available for all commodities except hazardous cargo.
