NATCO SA was established in Johannesburg in 1996 for the purpose of servicing various logistic projects in West Africa, on behalf of our head office in Zurich, Switzerland.
NATCO SA is now 100% privately owned and owner managed.
NATCO SWITZERLAND was established in 1980 as the freight forwarder to facilitate a combined service for specialised trade projects.
Due to commercial business demands and our extensive growth in freight forwarding, we expanded our service in international imports and exports. We fully incorporate the logistics of sea and air cargo. We do our own customs clearing to facilitate a faster and more effective service.
We operate from offices in Johannesburg, Durban, Cape Town and Port Elizabeth and offer a full import and export logistics service from receiving / collecting cargo, consolidating and forwarding up to final destinations world-wide. We also provide a comprehensive import forwarding service in conjunction with our partners from around the globe.
NATCO SA Jhb has recently acquired a 6000sqm warehouse which enables us to provide an effective storage and handling facility.
We are an experienced freight forwarding team, who are highly devoted to making our individual and specialised service a success.
We define our market as the place where we can reach our goals in time. And we have goals that excite us and goals that are met!
They also motivate our highly qualified employees and earn the loyalty of our customers. In our niche, we see ourselves as market leaders and not as market followers.
We are aware of the fact that a high service quality is expected as a matter of course in our industry and that there are many alternatives in the market. We therefore focus on those customers who require flexibility, enthusiasm, professionalism, honesty and successful communication. Our business is built on a high degree of compatibility between the requirements of our customers and our resources.
NATCO SA has hired experts in the Importing, Exporting and Projects Sector and tailor made solutions to your logistical requirements can be developed and managed effectively.
The waning global economical situation has not affected our service quality or strength in the market. We remain competitive with our stance that quality growth has to keep up with quantitative growth. In our industry, this area is often neglected. Contracts are more varied, competition is tougher and the prices are lower. All too often individuality and flexibility are sacrificed. In close cooperation with our customers, NATCO SA is focusing on closing this gap between quality and quantity.
NATCO SA and its staff want to participate in the creation of a worth living future and to ensure that today's solutions do not put tomorrow's resources and living conditions in jeopardy. Environmental protection is one of the most pressing issues facing our world today. Consequently, environmental issues are a challenge for all companies in all sectors. NATCO SA regards sustainable development as a fundamental aspect of sound business management. NATCO SA is committed to continuing the integration of environmental aspects into its business activities.
- We seek to build services by taking advantage of environmental market opportunities. We incorporate due consideration of environmental risks into our risk management processes.
- We will actively seek ways of reducing the environmental impact to air, soil and water from our in-house operations.
- We will comply with relevant environmental legislative, regulatory, permit and corporate requirements.
The implementation of the environmental aspects is an ongoing process of continuous improvement.

NATCO SA grants the same respect to its employees as it does to its most valued customers.
