What are Logistics Guarantee
Logistics Guarantees are offered as security to SARS Customs or the logistics suppliers in line with their policy. The guarantee usually states that if the client does not adhere to the terms as laid out by the beneficiary of the guarantee, the beneficiary can claim such payment against the guarantee.
This could cover payment of deferment accounts, acquittals into a bonded warehouse or consignor bond, or for a credit line offered by Transnet for port usage.
