Our company was originally founded in 2004 by Cliff Martin and in 2010 Trevor Hadfield joined as a Partner.
We are based in South Africa, the African hub of trade business and are a strong team of Business Entrepreneurs with over 25 years’ experience in the trading environment including Banking, Foreign exchange, Marketing and Trade research.
In the mid 2000's we found a niche in the market that required a remote service by a professional agent offering expertise at the fraction of the cost of running one's own division, leaving Clients to focus on their products without incurring additional costs and liability. Through this and the collapse of Zimbabwe's Currency we became one of the major suppliers to companies and individual clients in Zimbabwe with foodstuffs and general merchandise, with in excess of 3000 tons moving through the border per month. We were able to assist the Home shoppers, Major corporations, Feeding schemes for staff and Mining houses to ensure continuance of production, and the stocking of shelves for major Retail groups.
Our primary function is to explore new opportunities and move your Company's products along all major routes to new destination markets in Africa. CDT has been involved in all aspects of Import & Export with everything from Charcoal, Beer, Chutney and Wine to Australia; Biltong and Confectionery, Manufacturing equipment to the UK; Soft drinks to Ireland; and Engine parts to Germany.
The list is endless, and so we continue to expand our Client's footprint into Tanzania, Uganda, DRC, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Ghana and the rest of Africa.
