Response from the owner: Thank you very much for the kind words. Appreciation of our work goes such a long way. Thank you too for entrusting Pioneer Freight with your business.
Pioneer Freight has been clearing & delivering my goods for nearly 20yrs, mostly the same staff giving the best service always. I'm able to do what I do knowing I have the best support only a call away, the big boss has been a good leader & always available too.
Excellent company, you really can’t go wrong with them.
Response from the owner: Thank you very much for your kind words Matthew. We greatly appreciate your support.
The best meticiuous and on time, friendly service we have ever used. Efficiency cannot be over prized - and Pioneer have it.
Every interaction with this company is the best by far. In our continuous interaction opinion there is no better company, no company doing more than pioneer freight in imports and exports for their clients. I initially thought they abit pricey than some of the other companies but I was still happy by the service they provide but they are actually much cheaper in cost and time. Big huge enormous shout out to Daniel and Caroline. If you require their type of service, then I highly recommend them. Thank you for your service mighty pioneer freight. Ismail Louw from louwair

Great Export team in Cape Town ,friendly fast and very efficient !
Prompt and Friendly Service always! My no 1 call for any courier needs.
Great assistance with a very last minute package which had to get moving promptly. Would recommend.
We have been using Pioneer Freight for over 10 Years and have had nothing but excellent service all round from them. We use both the JHB and Cape Town offices and must compliment all staff members accordingly. Would highly recommend their services.
Pioneer Freight shipped was responsible for shipping a large, fragile package from Johannesburg to Cape town.They went the extra mile to discuss the shipping requirements and recommend additional packaging. The package arrived well packed and on time 2 days later, exactly as discussed.Highly recommended. Will use again in the future
I've been using Pioneer freight for almost a year now and very happy with the excellent service. I often have special requests and there has never been hesitation. Thank you to Pam, Chantal and team.
Sales lady, M ....👍
Second to none.
Very friendly staff. Always a pleasure to work with Jan Pretorius
The best experience ever dealing with a freight forwarding and clearing company.
Very Professional Staff
By far the best experience I have ever had from any logistics company in South Africa. Shaun from Cape Town assisted me with a problematic custom clearance. He kept me up to date every step of the way. I could recommend them with the greatest ease. Well done Shaun. How I wish other South African companies in general could provide service like you guys.
This company has 3 branches in SACT DBN AND JHB. They have agents worldwide and provide fantastic service!
Tres bonne équipe tres serieux. Je les recommande vivement.
Amazing work environment
Friendly service and always kept up to date with arrangements!
Phone rang and rang , no reply
We moved half way with our shipment from Pioneer Freight to an other Freight Forwarder and and can say it was the best decision, they need communication skills, and how to act professionally or at least the agent who handled our shipment at the JHB Branch, at least we received our deposit back, yes we paid already and then decided to ask for our money back they acted very unprofessionally, throughout we asked multiple times to work with someone else yet that could not have been done. was a very bad experience overall
