Freight Forwarding & Sea Freight Logistics

Do you want to ship your commercial goods overseas, either out of or into Australia?

We help both existing and new businesses with import and export shipping. Our professional and reliable freight forwarding services will have your overseas shipments happen on time, on budget and with no hassles! But first you need to know what you can and can’t do freight-wise.

Questions to ask your freight forwarder to ensure the safety of your goods.

The following are simple guidelines to help you arrange safe and reliable freight shipments for your goods. Ask these questions of any potential freight forwarding service.

What is the Freight Forwarder’s experience?

Inquire about past clients, what sort of oversize cargo they have handled in the past, and how long they have been doing business. Are they able to handle your job from start to finish with a minimum of stress and maximum efficiency.

What size and type of projects are your Freight Forwarding Company comfortable handling?

Is your job too small or large for the firm? Freight Forwarders will often have a core business that they are comfortable handling.

What shipping services do they offer?

This could include ocean freight, air freight, trans-shipment services, FCL and LCL cargo, insurance, permits, rolling stock, haulage or others. Can the freight forwarder arrange customs clearance services for you or recommend a reliable customs broker. With regard to transporting heavy machinery and equipment – can they take care of all the details for you with minimum fuss and maximum care.Sea and Air Freight shipping routes

Can the freight forwarder arrange cargo insurance and permits for you, if necessary?

We do! Cargo insurance is an integral part of shipping freight, and especially with oversize freight. Overseas freight shipping can be a risky (though rewarding) enterprise with many potential hazards. We highly recommend taking out freight insurance to protect you and your precious cargo every step of the journey.

Does your freight forwarder have the ability to offer you a range of different freight solutions for your needs?

A freight forwarding company should be able to guide you on what routes or specialised services are the best to use for your particular project. If they have suitable experience, you will know that your job is in safe hands.

What are their costs and can they work with your budget?

Rates will vary among freight forwarders. When dealing with oversize cargo and heavy equipment in particular, it is always wise to remember, you get what you pay for. The cost of loss or damage to your precious cargo when using an inexperienced company will far outweigh the modest cost of a knowledgeable freight forwarding services company such as ourselves.

When importing or exporting cargo to and from Australia, you want everything to run as smoothly as possible. It is vital that the freight forwarder understands your specific requirements and tailors a logistics service to your own particular needs.
