Have you ever thought about how exporting from Thailand may help your business? There are hundreds of Australian companies currently bringing Thai goods into this country, and most use freight forwarding companies such as TSL.

Trade Between Australia And Thailand

Australia imported 14.1 billion worth of goods from Thailand in 2016-7. Our major imports from Thailand include goods vehicles, passenger motor vehicles, heating/cooling equipment and parts, and household equipment. You can find out more about Australia’s trading relationship with Thailand in this report by Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

Sea Freight From Thailand

Are you looking to transport your goods into Australia using the cheapest method possible? Transporting consignments as sea freight from Thailand is the best-value way of transferring goods the 6,000km between Australia and this Southeast Asian nation. Sea cargo will usually take between 18 and 30 days to reach Australia from Thailand, and is ideal if the goods you’re exporting from Thailand are heavy or bulky.

Air Freight From Thailand

Shipping goods on an aeroplane is, of course, much quicker than sending them with sea freight from Thailand, and typically takes between one and six days. It is, however, more expensive than sending the goods via the ocean. The total time taken will depend on a number of factors, such as where your pick-up and delivery points are, and how much inland transportation is required in each country.

Import Customs From Thailand

The Thailand-Australia Free Trade Agreement (TAFTA) and the ASEAN-Australia-New Zealand Free Trade Agreement (AANZFTA) have provided huge opportunities for exporting from Thailand to Australia. These economic partnerships have eliminated many import tariffs, making import customs from Thailand much more manageable for all businesses, particularly smaller ones.

So What Export Tariff Will I Pay On My Goods?

To discover what to expect in terms of import customs from Thailand to Australia, you can use the Australian Government’s Free Trade Agreement Portal. This handy tool requires you to enter your chosen item into a search engine, along with the country of import and export. You will then be able to select your item from a list, according to which category it falls into. You will then discover your item’s HS code, the import tariff you will pay when your goods arrive into Australia, along with information about application of any free trade agreements. As you will see, most items have had their tariffs removed thanks to the AANZFTA.
