How Is An Air Freight Shipment Cleared Through Customs?

After your package has been sent by air and before you can collect it from the airline terminal at Tullamarine, duty and / or GST will need to be paid (if the goods are worth more than $1,000 AUD). Regardless of whether your cargo is above or below this threshold, you will still need a customs broker to clear it through Customs and Quarantine.

In order to proceed through this stage, we’ll ask you to email us a copy of the commercial invoice for the goods, the Air Waybill document and an authorisation form.

We will then process the shipment through Customs and Quarantine; if both Government departments clear it –  either you can collect the goods from the airport or we can deliver to you the next business working day. If further assessment is required either by the Australian Border Force (ABF) or the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources (DAWR), we will have it inspected on your behalf.
