Seabourne Express South Africa was given an opportunity to add a complementary business to our existing portfolio. In the process the company has gained more visibility in its core courier and distribution business and gained a warehouse component specifically aimed at the specialist technology market. This has meant upgrades to most of our branches countrywide as the whole company embraced this exciting and important new venture!
Most of the planning took place at the end of 2015, the building of infrastructure (shelving, IT backbone, telephony system) was done in early January 2016 and the new site was occupied after 11 years doing business at the previous premises. Our actual handover of stock commenced end of January and continued for 6 weeks.
Seabourne South Africa is proud to continue its excellent service to our current clients and look forward to extend the same level of service to our new business partners.

Most university students start the new term at the beginning of September. Click2Campus www.click2campus.com make it easier for the many international students who arrive with nothing more than a suitcase of clothes. They offer university packs for students across a large range of products from cutlery to pillows! Click2Campus looked for a partner that could fulfil this requirement and since summer 2013 Seabourne has been their preferred supplier.
Click2Campus sell good quality, value-for-money students’ essentials and deliver them right to their accommodation – anywhere in the UK. The packs provide students with most of their everyday essentials . In short, they are ideal starter packs for any self-respecting student.
From nothing to everything
Seabourne make up kits during August for shipment in the peak period. The timing of this project is a challenge for Click2Campus. They searched for a partner that could handle volumes to complete this project in two weeks. Timing, logistics expertise and service are key words here. The right mix at Seabourne was the deciding factor.
Bob Williamson (Managing Director, Click2Campus.com) commented: “The combination of varied and multiple contents in the packs, a very short window for fulfilment through to dispatch, and an even shorter window for ‘just in time’ deliveries, means there very few companies in the UK that we could feasibly partner with. With their flexible and proactive approach, Seabourne are proving to be the best around for our unique needs.”
