There are a number of ways in which Seafreight can be transported
- FCL or Full container load, we provide import and export services for full container load (FCL) shipments to and from all destinations covered by our Freight Network and Partners. We also arrange container transport and packing facilities services
- LCL or Less than container load, Whether you have one box or one pallet and you do not have a full container load, LCL consolidated cargo is the next option. Through our Worldwide Networks and Partners, we offer consolidated service to most destinations.
- Weekly consolidation services to worldwide destinations
- Cargo collection and packing facilities
- delivery of your cargo to any destination in Australia
- FCX – Multiple Suppliers, This is where one owner has purchased goods from mulitiple suppliers from the same country of origin and wants to minimise their costs by combining into a full container load (FCL). Brisbane Customs Brokers can offer FCX consolidated services through our extensive Worldwide Networks and Partners. We can offer:
- Central point to receive goods from mulitiple suppliers
- Container packing
- Cargo Collection and packing facilities
- Cargo Transport from destination to anywhere in Australia
- RORO or Roll on roll off, where your products do not leave the vehicle they are in to go onto the cargo ship. The vehicle simply drives onto the ship, and then drives off the other end.
- Break bulk cargo, any freight that does not fit into a container. Example mining & agricultural machinery, boats, construction material.

TAG: Do you require Marine Transit Insurance for your cargo!
With all Incoterms/Buying terms with the supplier (FOB, CIF, Ex-Works etc), you will need to consider if your consignment requires insurance, it is recommended that you take out insurance with us for your cargo regardless if your buying terms are CIF, FOB or EXW (unless you have your own annual policy). Contact our sales team for quote.
It is important to note that most all CIF consignments do not cover your cargo from door to door, only from port to port, not to your warehouse - We have had many clients not aware that their cargo is not insured once cargo has left the Australian port or terminal. Australian Customs Brokers & Logistics is an appointed intermediatory distributor for Maritime Marine Insurance Policies. We arrange marine insurance policies for most cargo types and destinations; this includes the domestic sectors of your freight movement. We use only Australian insurance companies so you will be dealing with a local company.
