What Do We Need To Provide For Sea Freight Shipments
So that we can start the customs clearance process, we’ll need for you to email us all of the shipping papers such as:
- The commercial invoice
- The packing list
- The bill of lading
- Packing declaration
- Photos of the goods
- Authorisation form and
- Fumigation certificate (if applicable)
After the customs clearance has been processed we can then deliver the sea freight [Less than a Container Load] or sea freight [Full Container Load] to your location.
Full Container Load (FCL)Once you have purchased your goods from overseas, they are placed into a container and put on-board a ship for shipping to Port Melbourne. After you have provided us with all of the necessary paperwork we’ll attempt to pre-clear the cargo through Customs and Quarantine. Once the cargo is available for collection from Port Melbourne, we will then deliver the full shipping container to your site.
Less than Container Load (LCL)If your cargo does not fill an entire shipping container, your goods will be shipped to Port Melbourne sharing space with other people’s goods. After you have provided us with all of the necessary paperwork we’ll attempt to pre-clear the cargo through Customs and Quarantine. Once the shipping container has been fully unpacked and everyone’s goods have been separated, either Melbourne Customs or yourself can collect the goods and deliver to your site. It generally takes 5 days for a container to be unpacked in Port Melbourne, after this time you have 3 days to collect the goods before storage will commence.
