2. Export Sea and Airfreight

Save on export costs. Use smart containers.

No matter whether your freight is large or small or you need a regular service or just a one-off shipment, Seabird Customs & Forwarding Agents can meet your needs. We can ensure your consignment travels door-to-door, airport-to-airport or wharf-to-wharf, by the most cost-effective route to almost anywhere in the world. If you have a large number of suppliers with small consignments destined for locations within Australia or overseas, our "smart container" deal can help you save on costs. If your overall volume fills a container we will pick up the consignments and consolidate them in F.C.L shipping containers, coordinate the consignments and take care of the entire organisation saving you time and money. Plus, with all your cargo arriving in one FCL consignment, all your deliveries arrive at the same time at a reduced freight rate. Our experienced staff are always available to take your enquiries.

5. Australian Customs and Quarantine Clearance

Don't let a customs clearance problem cost your business time and money.

Australian Customs and Quarantine formalities for the clearance of imports or exports consignments are highly regulated in Australia. The correct preparation and completion of the clearance procedures are critical, as heavy penalties may be applied if the correct procedures are not fulfilled.

Seabird can ensure the appropriate documentation is filled out and the correct importing and exporting procedures followed to minimise clearance delays.

Our systems are electronically linked to the Australian Customs Service, the Australian Quarantine Service and other government departments. This means we access duty rates, duty concessions and other information traditionally stored in numerous volumes of paper binders within an instant. This combined with our expert clearance personnel ensures our clearance service is second to none.

Should you decide to utilise our overseas forwarding network we will provide electronic import documents well before your shipment is due. This procedure allows the processing of the customs quarantine formalities in advance of the actual cargo arrival.
