At ICT service is always our top priority.

If and when things do go wrong, it is very important to us, who serve as an extension of your service and network, to be able to offer an amicable and suitable resolution. We firmly believe that the key to long-term relationships lies in how we handle such situations. It is ultimately our responsibly to assist our customers to neutralise the situation, assist with fixing the problem at hand and ultimately by doing so, ensuring that we assist you to retain your customer. As a further commitment to enhancing our service offering, we have included the FreightGuard Service Guarantee in our range of services to our customers. If there is a situation where ICT, or its network partners, experience an incident that results in the loss or damage of your consignment, we are now able to compensate you through the FreightGuard Service Guarantee program. The service guarantee is designed to protect our customers against loss or damage while the goods are in our care, custody, and ultimately under the control of ICT. The guarantee provides for compensation of up to R10,000.00 per non-document at a very reasonable rate of R 70.00 per waybill and compensation of up to R2 500.00 per document at a rate of R5.00 per waybill. Claims are resolved quickly and professionally by FreightGuard, and no excess is applied to the claim settlement amount. Further to the above benefits, this can also serve as a sales benefit to you as our customer, when on selling our services to your customer base. This service will automatically be included in our service offering as of 1 June 2024 and will apply to all consignments consigned on your account, unless a waiver form is received from you. The FreightGuard Service Guarantee Terms and Conditions, which form part of the ICT Terms and Conditions of Carriage, can be found below.

Should you choose not to have this service guarantee program automatically applied to your shipments, please e-mail: in order to provide you with a waiver form to complete. Feel free to contact your ICT sales representative if you would like more information about this or any of our other services.
