DAZMAC Pty Ltd was founded by our Managing Director Daryl McIntyre in January 2010. The business aim was and still is to streamline the shipping process for Marine & Automotive importers by offering an end to end solution. We identified these industries as being over priced with lots of hidden costs & potential pitfalls. We set our goals to make our service competitive, informative, transparent, and hassle free.

In a short period of time we formed good partnerships with like minded agents in USA, Canada, New Zealand, Japan, Singapore, China, Hong Kong, Vietnam, UK and Europe.

We have formed strong relationships Transglobal Logistics, Oceans International, & Autohub, which are among the largest vehicle & boat freight forwarders in the world.

These relationships along with having reliable experienced staff have enabled DAZMAC to become a market leader in shipping boats & cars into Australia.

Daryl McIntyre

Managing Director

I started in logistics in 1998 starting as a office junior and working up through various positions including, import sea freight, operations, warehouse manager, cartage co-coordinator,  freight manager, customer service, business development and sales. I had a short stint in 2006 in the UK for 9 months in a Art shipping company moving expensive sculptures and paintings around the world before settling back in Australia starting a freight section in a small established customs brokerage. In January 2010 I decided to started my own business and the DAZMAC Sydney office opened and has grown rapidly since. We opened our Gold Coast Branch in April 2013 with a office in Gold Coast City Marina which is the heart of the boating industry in Australia. In 2015 we started we expanded our Sydney operation into warehousing, gaining  both Customs 77G bonded and Quarantine class 1.3 depots so we could ensure our specialised cargo was handled properly. In 2016 we became a Licensed Tow Truck Operator and acquired a 4 car carrier and tilt tray in Sydney which enabled us to have a true to door service. In 2017 we moved our the Gold Coast City Marina into 3000 sqm site in Yatala gaining both Customs 77G bonded and Quarantine class 1.3 depots.

I also joined the AIMVIA (Australian Imported Motor Vehicle Association) in 2016 as a volunteer to assist with lobbying for positive to expand the very restricted imported used vehicle industry. I filled the role as secretary and treasurer at separate times.

I started my freight career in 2000. I worked through various roles starting as a Junior house clerk, exports, customs compiling through to operations manager all in the same company. In 2005 I obtained my customs brokers licence from Australian customs. During my time in the industry I have found a small niche in handling motorsport and event logistics. Still to this day Dazmac handles a number of motorsport based clients. In 2012 I joined Daryl at Dazmac having known him since 1994 and working together in the freight industry. In April 2013 I moved to the Gold Coast to start our QLD branch. Since then the office has expanded quickly and our goal for 2016/2017 is to offer our own customs/quarantine depot.
