Bringing merchandise to Australia from India is certainly big business – incoming trade from this South Asian country is worth around AU$ 4.9 billion annually (2018-19 figure). Perhaps you’re planning to import goods from India? If so, ¬you’ll need to find a logistics provider you can trust 100%. TSL offers high-quality air and ocean freight services from India to Australia. Our offerings cover all aspects of freight forwarding, including pick-up, packing, warehousing, heavy haulage, customs clearance and more. Allow us to guide you through the process of how to import goods from India into Australia.
Air Freight Services From India
Sending items from South Asia to Australia by plane is by far the quickest transportation method. It can take as little as 24 hours to fly your goods from Indian to Australian soil. With TSL, the total time taken for air freight services from India to Australia will depend on the availability of direct flights – it could be up to six days. An important thing to remember is that arranging transit by air is usually more costly to organise than ocean freight services from India.
Ocean Freight Services From India
Sea travel is generally cheaper than organising air freight services from India, but of course this method of transportation does take longer – typically between 24 and 32 days for this length of trip. There is at least 5,500km of sea between the two continents, and the total distance covered will often be significantly longer owing to the fact both Australia and India are extremely large countries. TSL has built up great relationships with the top shipping companies operating worldwide, so we’ll easily be able to arrange ocean freight services from India on behalf of your business.
Heavy Haulage For Inland Travel
When working out estimated journey times for your cargo, remember you’ll need to take inland travel into consideration. If your goods are being shipped by sea from a central Indian city such as Hyderabad or Bangalore and need to be delivered to a location in western Queensland, you’ll need to add on a few extra days either end.
Inland travel may be carried out via the railway or road networks of India and Australia, or by using a combination of both. TSL will pinpoint the most cost effective and efficient method and discuss your options with you to decide on the best solution. Whether you’re importing to India by sea or by plane, your cargo will be forwarded to its end destination in our expert heavy haulage vehicles and handled using high-quality specialised equipment such as cranes and industry-approved trailers.
