About Us

Our optimal location for global trade in particular

Tradeandprojects Pty LTD is based in Richards Bay within the uMhlathuze Local Municipality, KwaZulu-Natal province of South Africa.  Our location is optimal in the facilitation of imports and exports. Richards Bay is one important point of entry and exit of goods in the province of KwaZulu-Natal and South Africa.  Our company is located close to the Richards Bay Industrial Development Zone, the Port of Richards Bay and the Richards Bay Airport, – which provides a strategic position for our core business activities stated below.

A further endowment enjoyed due to our locational position, is that we enjoy services of reputable financial banking facilities, good road and rail infrastructure networks which are conducive to freight operations, importing and exporting, sales and distribution of goods, as well as hinterland travel for both domestic international tourist customers.

The complement of our customer segments – rural and township

While we are open to all who seek our core services, for import and export the main customers/consumers in focus are suppliers and manufacturers [domestic or foreign]. – who are our prospective Principals. We also cater for most actors in the international trade supply and value chain.

In addition to the above, we have a particular obligation to provide entrepreneurial advisory and capacitation of rural and township trading and enterprising entities. Guided by our business model, our focus is directed to the capacitation interventions aimed at the creation and resuscitation of the local economy – thereby creating and expanding our client base. The following sectors constitute categories of our target market which will turn to become our export principals or distribution channels:

  • Retail: SMEs, Social Enterprises [co-operatives, stokvels and community organisations],
  • Creative: Handicrafts and Leather product projects,
  • Non-Governmental: NGOs, CBOs, NPOs, other trading community organisations,
  • Farming and Agriculture: Essential oils projects, aquaculture farming projects, community garden projects, some value-add-product-type projects, stock farmers and small-scale sugarcane farmers,
  • Transportation: Taxi associations, scholar transport operators and emerging freight association groupings,
  • Religious observance entities: Churches and other.
