Sea Freight Shipping From Indonesia To Australia

Transporting your items on a cargo ship is the cheapest way of getting them into the country. If you are planning to import products from Indonesia to Australia that are cumbersome or especially heavy, and if you are not restricted with regard to time, this is the perfect option.

How Long Will Shipping Take?

Shipping from Indonesia to Australia by sea takes between 16 and 22 days with TSL. The total time depends on the following factors:

  • Ports of departure/arrival: Shipping to Melbourne or other southern Australian ports will take longer than if your merchandise arrives into Darwin, for example.
  • Container type: Cargo in a private container, or full container loads (FCLs), will arrive to Australia more quickly than less than container loads (LCLs). This is because it is less likely to be delayed by other consignments.
  • Cargo type: Certain items will be subject to stricter and lengthier customs checks by the Australian Border Force on arrival.
  • Inland travel time: This will vary depending on your consignment’s pick-up point in Indonesia and delivery destination in Australia.
  • Weather conditions: The weather may affect the vessel’s departure from Indonesia, its progression at sea and its arrival into Australia.

Air Freight Shipping From Indonesia To Australia

Shipping via air is more expensive than sea freight, and is the option to go for if you wish to get your items into Australia more quickly. If you choose to import products from Indonesia via air, you’re looking at a transit time of 1-7 days. The total time will depend on the following:

  • Cargo type: Certain items will be subject to stricter and lengthier customs checks by the Australian Border Force on arrival.
  • Inland travel time: This will vary depending on your consignment’s pick-up point in Indonesia and delivery destination in Australia.
