Can I buy a single label / satchel?

No, unfortunetely not.

Labels are sold in booklets containing 5 – 100 prepaid labels.  Satchels are sold in packs of 20 – 40.


Can I buy labels on account?

Fastway operates on a prepaid label system only. By not offering our services on account helps us to keep our costs down and ensures that our customers get the best courier rates possible.

Why are your labels prepaid?

Prepaid labels enable customers to make savings on their usual freight costs, as well as providing a simple system free of any extra paperwork or add on charges. Fastway’s services are targeted towards small and medium sized businesses that need predictability of freight costs combined with reliable service. Fastway’s courier services are organised on a cycle basis as opposed to urgent or point to point services and are perfect for customers who need their goods delivered promptly but not urgently.

I'm a high-volume sender. Do I have to use the manual label system?

For customers who have a medium to high freight volume, Fastway is able to offer its own electronic labelling solution, allowing our customers to focus on their core business, and their customers, not just their freight. Fast Label is our custom web-based label printing solution. This application not only has the ability to print delivery address labels but also automatically calculates the appropriate prepaid label required to send the parcel to its destination. This application can be interfaced directly into most pick and pack / accounting systems, significantly reducing dispatch labour requirements. It can also provide a variety of reports which can assist you in monitoring your freight costs. For further information about Fast Label, please contact your nearest Fastway depot.

What's your label refund policy?

Unfortunately, Fastway labels are non-transferable and non-refundable. For further information, please refer to our Conditions of Carriage.

In which locations do you operate?
In South Africa, Fastway has a presence in all major centres.

Can I use Fastway labels in any location you operate?

Unfortunately not. Fastway is a franchise system and our label numbers have been allocated to specific locations. For this reason, labels purchased from one location are not transferable between businesses or locations. Pricing may also vary from region to region. Refer to our pricing schedule for further details.

Can I send internationally?

Fastway prides itself on being a domestic courier specialist. We provide metropolitan, shorthaul and national freight distribution in key locations around South Africa. Unfortunately, we don’t offer an international freight service. Read more about our courier services.

Can I have a copy of your logo?
