Planning and Shipping
From keeping the Australian government happy to making sure you have the correct import permit, we’ll handle all of the planning and documentation on your behalf.
All UK exports require an EORI (Economic Operator Registration and Identification Number) along with various other rules that, if not organised prior to your shipment, will cause significant delays and increased costs when reaching customs. We can ensure these are all taken care of.
Shipping overseas isn’t known as a quick process, so make sure you are giving yourself time, with reasonable deadlines for when you need the heavy machinery equipment in Australia. To help speed the process, get the equipment in the best condition possible in advance of shipping, breaking it down into the smallest components that it can go, to allow for easier shipping, and cheaper costs for you.
Once your shipment is on its way, you’ll be provided with tracking details so you can monitor the shipment as it goes.
Customs And Quarantine
The roll-on, roll-off (RORO) process suggests that your vehicle will simply roll on to a ship at origin, and roll off at its destination. And while that is true, there are many logistical steps along the way that complicate the process.
Strict custom and quarantine measures from the Australian government will ensure your cargo has a rigours checklist to comply with before it is released to you. As your customs broker, we ensure that all strict biosecurity measures can be easily addressed, and you’ll be informed along the way about your cargos status as it passes these security checks.
How Long Does It Take to Ship Machinery from UK to Australia?
