Ruru is an independent freight forwarder operating within a network of freight forwarders and shipping agents worldwide to provide competitive rates and options for moving Full-Load Cargo, Less Than Container Load and Break-Bulk Cargo - whether imported, exported or trans-shipped.
With warehouse strategically located near the port of Dares Salaam, Ruru is equipped to handle both bonded and cleared cargo. Customs officers are actually based on site at the Ruru warehouses to help facilitate the movement of cargo. Fumigation services are provided by a partner company.
IMPORTS Cargo into Tanzania is either cleared through Customs on the wharf, or transported to our warehouses near Julius Nyerere International Airport where it is deconsolidated and placed in our bonded Container Freight Stations (CFS). Clients are notified when their consignment is available. Door-to-door services can be organised. The Imports Departments at the ports facilitates all documentation for clearance with the governing authorities in Tanzania.
EXPORTS For exports, clients provide us with their documentation, enabling us to complete the balance of documentation required to have their cargo accepted for export at our ports. FCLs can be received at our depots prior to shipping but are mainly delivered directly to the wharf, prior to the vessel's arrival. LCL cargo can be palletized, shrink -wrapped and crated if required. Fumigation can also be done if requested. For both exports and imports our Ruru worldwide network of recognized agents ensures that all shipments are delivered safely and on time. Clients are encouraged to take out insurance or else they will be deemed to be accepting the risk associated with international forwarding and shipping.
Tanzania is often referred to as the “Hub of the East and Central Africa” and is uniquely positioned to handle trans-shipment cargo from anywhere destined for our East and Central Africa neighbours, including destinations such as Uganda, Burundi, Rwanda, Zambia, Malawi and DRC.
