About Us


BCF started in 2016 in Lusaka as a natural outflow of the Bester Zambia operations, when an opportunity arose for the group to handle the freight forwarding of all cross-border logistics from Zambia, in-house. Today the business has become a standalone company in BexGroup, BCF International, a fully fledged independent clearing and forwarding company that can offer sea, air, road and rail options with presence in Zambia, South Africa and a newly acquired Zimbabwe.


BCF International has access to a larger network through strong partnership agreements in a number of countries in Southern Africa, and across the globe, with the view to expanding this network into other markets.
