Sea freight shipping involves the transport of goods in cargo ships which move on water; whether that is in seas or major rivers. Sea freight shipments take longer than airfreight but are more cost efficient. Shipping your cargo by sea is also more eco-friendly, due to low levels of fossil fuels and low fuel consumption.

There are many similarities between Australia and the UK, from business structure and legal practices to language and culture. The number of British citizens who are permanent residents has raised to over 1.2 million, with around 500,000 more Brits visiting each year. The countries close proximity to Asia Pacific economies and years of uninterrupted economic growth bodes well for British businesses wanting to export to Australia. 

Our experienced and dedicated staff can assist customers with destination charges and import licenses. We can provide our customers with door delivery. Removal services for personal and household effects, and special project services are also available. It is important to remember that Australia has regulations regarding ISPM15. We can also provide guidance on the necessary quarantine process.

Please note that customers wishing to export goods to Australia will need to ensure ISPM15 standards are adhered to. This is the internationally agreed standard for the treatment of all forms of packaging made from solid wood.
