Superior Services

L&YFF services are delivered in the most challenging harsh terrains in Tanzania, including remote areas of Tanzania. We are regularly required to provide such services in a total green-field environment, often in areas lacking basic infrastructure. Using specialized equipment, L&YFF often provide the initial supply chain to make a project possible despite the lack of infrastructure. Over the recent years, many large cargo movement projects have been carried out by L&YFF. Our teams work “on-site” to prepare cargo for shipment in an efficient manner, they charter vessels and aircrafts; draft road surveys and access sites; setup logistic platforms and load optimization plans to transport, haul, lift, move, carry and deliver cargo within deadlines. With commodity values making remote area projects more viable, the diversity of the logistics services supplied by L&YFF is combined with the full support of our network of agents that have made us a valuable contributor to the resource sector’s advancements.

Happy Customers

Whats our clients say.

Working with L & Y has truly been a blessing. Over the years we have worked with several companies competing for our freight. During that time I have had a lot of concern over my shipments. I must say that we now have a company now that really cares for and works for us unselfishly. My concerns are easily managed by the reassurance and customer service I get from L & Y! Whenever I need a shipment or quote I can rest easy that they are looking out for me and my company. They explained it to me once, that they would treat us as long term business partners and not one time customers! Boy has that been true. Our company ships Full Truckloads, shipments, Air Shipments, and Expedited Freight too many domestic points in Tanzania. We religiously choose L & Y to handle our freight needs not only because of Pricing but their Communication and Customer Service, which is second to none. I always know what’s happening with our freight and with their web based system I am now able to monitor everything that our company does and most importantly, it’ right at my fingertips. If someone in Corporate wants to know where something is or check on shipments that went out that day, they can log on, everything pertaining to our company is there! Very Impressive to say the least. I am grateful to have found a company as dedicated as L & Y and would happily Recommend them to anyone!

L & Y has been a lifeline to our Company in figuring out our freight needs and costs! Their understanding of our shipping needs have been amazing! Whether we need a lose parcel, International Shipment or an huge Shipment they always have a service to meet our needs. Most companies are only good in one area and will change pricing; L & Y has given us a system where we can get our rates and service, online, each and every time. We know our rate before we ship and shipping has never been more enjoyable. Also with the ability to warehouse product L & Y has been a life saver for us. They truly do have a one stop shop program and I Strongly recommend their Company!
