When importing or exporting international goods within Australia, sea freight is the most cost-efficient and flexible mode of cargo delivery. If your delivery is not particularly time-sensitive, using sea shipping is our recommended mode of overseas transport.
Freight costs when using an ocean freight service can be quite competitive. Many shipping lines sail to Australia from hundreds of international ports. Several lines will usually operate out of all the major ports which also gives you added flexibility.

Sea freight booking options
There are many options for booking sea freight shipments including Less than Container Loads (LCL) for smaller deliveries and Full Container Loads (FCL) for larger freight.
There are also various FCL options with different sizes and dimensions including refrigerated and oversized containers. You can find out more about container specifications on our resources page.
If you are on a strict deadline, we do recommend air freight as a quicker option. Though expect air freight costs to be higher than sea freight costs. Find out more information about our air freight services.
