Seaport to Seaport

Whilst available for shipments greater than 30kg, higher weights are more cost effective.As a guide shipments greater than 100kg become more cost effective, as all shipments incur documentation charges that are best amortised over larger weights.Ideal for unusual shaped items including surfboards and bikes.

A minimum charge of 1 cubic metre, and is calculated in cubic metre increments.

In addition there a number of extra charges payable by the receiver which are relatively flat in value and are not tied to the weight, but rather the shipment.

As the service implies it is only from seaport to seaport. The cheapest entry point into most countries is through the main international seaport (eg Tilbury in the UK, Paris, Hamburg etc). Other destinations (such as Bristol, Liverpool)are usually more expensive.

The price quoted can be either based on sender dropping off to nominated seaport or paying an additional cost for pickup and delivery to the seaport.This is calculated at time of quote.

The chargeable weight is based on the greater of the dead weight or the prevailing cubic calculation (available on request by email request or telephone 61 2 9980 1966 during business hours).

At the destination seaport it is solely the responsiblity of the receiver to pay all seaport and customs clearance charges, duties/taxes and any charges levied against the shipment.

A good option for people who are happy to do a lot of the legwork incorporated in a door to door service, and have costed the additional charges they will be levied.
