Correctly preparing machinery and earthmoving equipment for shipping, whether for import or export, is a major key to ensuring transportation is on time and within budget. We are freight forwarders, shipping agents and customs broker that can manage all pre-shipping preparation details including:

  • Machinery dismantle
  • Cleaning to comply with destination requirements
  • Packing
  • Collection and delivery to port
  • Fumigation
  • Permit applications (import, export, transport)
  • Vessel loading supervision
  • Machinery imports

Imported machinery and used parts, especially parts used in agriculture, mining and construction, are subject to import conditions and Australian Government regulations through the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF). 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 prior to arrival.

Australian import conditions require all machinery to 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.

Australian destination services

As international freight brokers and shipping agents, you can rely on us to manage your machinery imports and exports. We can arrange the efficient and cost effective movement of your cargo from the wharf to one of our preferred cleaning facilities.

We attend the initial quarantine inspection on the wharf, prior to movement to a wash facility. This allows us to give you the most accurate and relevant update on your shipment.

Through our network of preferred cleaning facilities, we are able to provide the most competitive balance between low cost and quick turnaround time to get your machinery released from quarantine and working for you.

We can also arrange freight forwarding anywhere in the state or interstate, should you require it.
