TF Shipping Ltd have local representative offices in Dar es Salaam to assist our clients once their cargo arrives into Tanzania. For our vehicle shipping services we utilise our own house bills of lading for clients but our local offices do not charge any handover fees locally. Therefore clients get the benefit of house bills of lading but do not have to pay any extra charges upon arrival.
