Whether you are shipping full container loads (FCLs) or less than container loads (LCLs) of sea freight to or from Australia, limited carrier contracts and unresponsive customer service can hurt your deliveries and profitability. Restrictions such as lack of time to unpack and de-hire containers at the port in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide or Fremantle contribute to delays or additional charges. Are you tired of paying your Australia-based freight forwarder a premium price for sea freight forwarding with mediocre results? Need your freight forwarder in Australia to provide you with more vessel and transportation options to make smarter shipping decisions?
