Sea Freight Customs Clearance LCL
(less than a container load)
Are you a first time importer? Do you have an item you would like to import into Australia but don’t know where to start? The majority of items we clear fall into the Sea Freight LCL (less than a container load) category. This means your item/s are less than a container load and will share space with other items on their way to Australia.
With over 75 locations worldwide; you are free to ask your supplier to deliver your LCL cargo to our depot and then we will place the cargo inside a shipping container and forward the goods to Australia, undertake the Australian Customs and quarantine clearance before delivering the goods to you.
In order for us to customs clear your sea freight FCL (full container load) shipment, we require the following paperwork from you:
A commercial invoice for the goods
Bill of Lading
Photos of the Goods
For any wooden packing or items that have been shipped.
- Every page of your passport to be faxed or mailed to us (even the blank pages).
- A fully completed Personal Effects form (click to download).
