For Crystalp Jewellery to expand into Australia, finding a specialist Customs Clearance Agent was critical. After meeting Peter McRae seven years ago, Crystalp Jewellery has used Platinum Freight for Customs clearance and distribution to our customers. It has been a pleasure to deal with Peter. His operation has cleared and dispatched our products in an extremely efficient and timely manner. Peter’s integrity and honesty is without challenge.
After an unexpected hold-up at Customs, I risked missing my flight while Customs processed the diamonds I was carrying in hand. I made a business decision: pay a broker to speed up the process and save on hotels and new flight costs. Platinum Freight cleared the diamonds in 30 minutes, meaning I didn’t miss my flight after all. Impressive.
On our first visit to an overseas jewellery fair, we purchased far beyond what we had planned. Then we got to customs, not knowing what would happen. They gave us a sheet of Custom Brokers and we randomly selected Platinum Freight Management. It proved to be an excellent choice. Peter McRae’s service was remarkable. Quick, efficient, great communications and before long the box of sparkles was back in our procession. We were very pleased with the company’s quality of service.
Savings on customs clearance fees DO NOT equal savings on duty and or GST. We provide savings on both.

Platinum Freight® has a dedicated team assigned to importers and exporters who move precious metals, precious stones and or jewellery into or out of Australia.
We assign our Titanium® customers with a 24 hour dedicated service team who handle all facets of their customs clearance and freight forwarding in regards to precious metals, precious stones and or jewellery.
As our Titanium® customers are quite often in a different time zone; most often transacting up until the very last day before they fly; we are aware that they require our attention before they board the flight out of or into Australia.
Titanium® is limited to those customers who have shown a commitment by tenure and expenditure with Platinum Freight®; Titanium customers are invited to this next level of dedication.

Simple mistakes, changes to procedures or just a change of flight can cost time, money and, in some cases, a client as a result of hold-ups with Customs, even for experienced importers. Platinum Freight Management offers three importing tips for jewellers:
