Sales of all goods/products to South Africa from Jul 2016 to Apr 2017 accounted for £0.34 billion, which were carried out in 19,308 shipments.
Trades that were worth less than £1 million accounted for £341.3 million of this total, which were carried out in 19,017 shipments.
This means that if we exclude the top 1.51% of shipments, the rest had an average value of just £17,945.82. The breakdown of these smaller trades is shown in the chart on the right for the top 10 categories.
11,467 shipments went by air (59% of them via London Heathrow) and the other 7,657 went via sea ports.
3.0% of the shipments used customs special procedures (Inward Processing or Outward Processing Relief or Re-exports). Most shipments of goods to most destinations do not use these special procedures.
The top 10 categories of goods for smaller shipments (below £320k, and between £320k and £1m) to South Africa are shown below.
