Sea Freight Customs Clearance LCL
(less than a container load)
Are you a first time importer? Do you have an item that you would like to import into Australia but don’t know where to start? The majority of items we customs clear fall into the Sea Freight LCL (less than a Container Load) category. This means that your items are Less than a Container Load and will share space inside a container with other items on their way to Australia.
You are free to ask your supplier to ship the goods to Australia on your behalf or you may wish for us to ship the goods to Australia; in that case we would ask your supplier to deliver your LCL cargo to our depot and then we would place the cargo inside a shipping container and forward the goods to Australia and undertake the Australian Customs ™ and quarantine clearance before delivering the goods to you.
