Air Freight Import From Indonesia To Australia
Exporting from Indonesia via the sky is the quickest way of getting it here – Indonesia is more than 3,500km from Australian shores. Air freight imports from Indonesia to Australia take around 1-7 days with TSL Australia, and are more costly than freight sent via the ocean. Air freight is the best transportation method to use if you have an unlimited budget. This transportation method is best used for cargo that is on the lighter side and does not take up too much space.
Sea Freight Import From Indonesia To Australia
Boats are, of course, much slower than planes, but there are a number of advantages of sending your precious cargo via the sea. For a start, sea freight imports are cheaper than air freight imports from Indonesia to Australia. This mode of transport is especially well suited to consignments that are bulky, heavy or oversized. Sea freight from Indonesia to Australia typically takes between 16 and 22 days.
