International Shipping Services to Australia

Shipping from the US to Australia

Australia has become a very popular destination for relocating overseas and one of the largest markets for international shipping services of equipment and personal vehicles. With this popularity, more Americans have begun shipping to Australia from all over the USA. Much of the population resides on either the eastern or southeastern coasts of the country with the exception of Perth in the west. The main ports used for trade and international shipping services to Australia are Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane and if you are relocating to Australia or shipping cargo there is a good chance you will be dealing with one of these.

Options for Container Shipping to Australia

When shipping freight to Australia, the most common shipment type is through containers. We offer two main services for container shipping which are consolidated LCL and full container FCL. Consolidated containers are loaded with multiple customers’ goods. Since you only pay for the space you use, it is the best value for what you are shipping if you don’t have enough for FCL. If you do need a full container, we offer both 20 and 40 foot options. These containers hold 1000 and 2000 cubic feet of freight respectively. 

How Much Does it Cost to Ship a Container to Australia

The costs to ship a container to Australia will depend on the origin/destination, items being shipped, and shipping service. Since there are many variables, there is no static price. In this case, a shipping from New York to Australia will have a different cost than from California. This is with everything else the same as well. For this reason, our representatives create custom quotes for each shipment.
