Caspian Freight cc was opened in May 1996 by its founding member Boyd Naidoo. Boyd’s experience in Clearing & Forwarding started at the young age of 18 with his 1st job at Freight Services Ltd, thereafter he moved on to Carlton Container Services in Johannesburg mainly focusing on Exports. Boyd excelled in his field and after 8 years at Carlton Containers he moved on to another company, a wire & steel manufacturer called Cape Gate Pty Ltd. Boyd was now the Shipping Manager in their Export & Import department. This job basically laid the foundation of Boyd’s vast knowledge in the Exporting & Importing of Wire & Steel.
This job also fuelled the ambition Boyd had always had to open his own Clearing & Forwarding Company. After 15 years with Cape Gate Boyd set out to open his own company – Caspian Freight – confident that he had gained the knowledge & expertise he would need to navigate the shipping field, he had also gained many contacts & built relationships with many companies in the wire & steel manufacturing trade.
The Company grew from a humble beginning to where it is today…
Sadly Boyd passed away on 5th March 2021 due to complications from contracting Covid Phenomena.
This has always been a Family Business, Boyd’s 3 children, nephews and staff will continue to grow the Company he worked so hard to create.
