Zygo has provided Freight Forwarding and Logistic Services since the
ninety's. We are all about the smooth flow of international trade and ensure our
customers goods move from point of origin to point of destination to arrive;
- at the right place,
- at the right time,
- in good order and condition,
- at the most economic cost.
To enable this Zygo has expertise in a number of areas;
Close co-operation is required
with transporters in every mode; road, rail, sea and air. We are constantly
negotiating freight rates with transport providers, comparing the costs of
moving cargo along different routes via different modes and then designing
logistics infrastructures which provide the best compromise between cost, speed
We derive continuous interest and
motivation from the fact that no two operations are the same, given the
diversity of the nature of cargoes that are traded and the increasing numbers of
doors being opened through the globalisation of world trade.
Once our recommendations with
regard to cargo routing have been accepted it becomes our responsibility to
ensure that the goods concerned are transported and delivered as planned.
The process of designing and
executing these logistics plans has earned us the title "Architect of
A vital ingredient to successful
trading on world markets is that every transaction must comply with a myriad of
statutory measures and their related procedures, especially those associated
with Customs. It is in this area that our specialised skills and knowledge come
to the fore. Without these, you would become hampered through being distracted
from you core activities meeting the material needs of world business.
To every international trade
transaction there is an element of risk and the increased complexity of
international trading as compared to local buying and selling requires that
these risks are managed with tools which are correspondingly more sophisticated.
Our customers require us to be in position to advise and assist them in
minimising those risks which are particularly associated with the movement of
goods; loss, damage and destruction, although our exposure to the international
environment in its entirety makes our counsel as regards matters like credit and
currency risks very much sought after.
Finance and Payment
We are entrusted with goods which
are very often dispatched under conditions where buyer and seller are not known
to one another. Under these circumstances we must scrupulously ensure that all
requirements of the door to door operation are complied with to the letter,
especially as far as the accurate and timely production of documentation is
concerned. Excellence in this field leads to prompt settlement for goods
purchased and satisfied traders.
An especially gratifying aspect
of our business is the facilitation, through consultancy and networking, of the
entry of new exporters and importers into the international market. More often
than not this involves advice as to the alternative methods of financing of the
transactions concerned and the establishment of payment methods that are
mutually beneficial to both parties.
