Mission : To provide the best Freight Forwarding & Customs Clearance service for our clients within Sri Lanka, regardless of industry, size or location.

Our Story.

Step back in time to 1948, the year that marked Sri Lanka's independence from British colonial rule. Amidst the celebrations and newfound freedom, a young teenager embarked on a journey that would revolutionize trade in his country. He became one of Sri Lanka's first customs clearing agents, ushering in an era of efficient and transparent import-export procedures that would benefit businesses and consumers alike. Fast forward to today, over seven decades later, and we're taking a look at this incredible journey – the challenges faced by our visionary pioneer and how his legacy continues to shape international commerce in Sri Lanka. That pioneering figure was Mr. A. H. A. Azeez.

Under Mr. Azeez's leadership, Master Freight has grown into a reputable name known for its reliability, efficiency and commitment to customer satisfaction. The company's success lies in its ability to leverage Mr. Azeez's vast experience and industry knowledge to navigate the complex customs procedures and provide innovative yet practical solutions for clients. Over the years, Master Freight has built a loyal customer base of multinational corporations and SMEs who value the company's personalized approach and on-time deliveries.

Mr. Azeez's long tenure in the industry has also earned him the respect of customs officials and other stakeholders, giving Master Freight an advantage in clearing shipments seamlessly. The company strives to maintain the highest standards of compliance, transparency and integrity in its dealings.

As Master Freight looks towards the future, Mr. Azeez's experience will continue to light the path, ensuring the company builds on its foundations of trust, reliability and innovation to grow from strength to strength. He has passed on this experience to his two grandsons, Imran Isfahan and Ifraz Isfahan, who serve as the company's Managing Director and Director, respectively.


Master Freight boasts a team of over 50 highly experienced employees, with over 60% of the workforce having dedicated more than 25 years to the company. This extensive tenure within the organization enables us to provide exceptional customs clearing and freight forwarding services in Sri Lanka, ensuring the highest level of quality and reliability.
