Shipping agents in Australia
Shipping agents providing seamless transport solutions
Importing and exporting machinery is a complex and highly regulated process. McLintock International is the shipping agent of Perth who knows the rules and knows how to ensure your goods arrive safely on time.
If you want to import machinery to Australia (as well as used parts for agriculture, mining and construction) it’s important to know the process is generally subject to import conditions and Australian Government regulations through the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry.
Permits are required for any used machinery that has come into contact with soil, animal or plant material. This applies to both breakbulk and containerised machinery. Import permits must be obtained before arrival, and your imported machinery must be clean on arrival. Machinery may require dismantling for effective cleaning before importing into Australia and must be kept clean during transport. If import conditions are not met, machinery will not be released and may be exported at the importer’s expense.
McLintock International is a shipping company providing import-export services tailored to these requirements.
