We provide all aspects of air freight shipping from Malaysia, helping businesses throughout the country with all aspects of the process. If you need goods packing up in a tiny village in rural Malaysia and sent to a Melbourne suburb in the least time possible, consider it done.
TSL can handle all areas of freight forwarding – including customs brokerage, packing and distribution – thanks to our wide network of competent teams. TSL is an air & sea freight forwarder Malaysia and Australia businesses can depend on when it comes to sending goods between these two countries efficiently, quickly and for competitive prices.
Shipping goods into Australia by air is by far the quickest way of getting goods into the country. Transporting items in this way usually takes between one and five days. Air freight import from Malaysia to Australia is most suited to less bulky, lighter consignments which will fit into an airplane. It is generally costlier than ocean freight transportation.
Australia’s top three trading partners are China, Japan and the United States. Malaysia is Australia’s 9th or 10th biggest trading partner, with two-way trade between these two countries estimated to be worth around $20bn. Trade from Malaysia into Australia is about of half of that. Currently the biggest products brought into Australia from Malaysia are electrical and electronic products, petroleum, metals, machinery, equipment and parts.
TSL is highly experienced in all areas of freight forwarding. As well as organising air freight forwarding, we are highly proficient in all areas of sea freight forwarding. If you think your consignment would be more suited to transportation by ocean, we can do that too. After all, sea freight forwarding is cheaper than air travel so it may be the best option for your company.

Since January 2013, there has been 0% duty on goods entering Australia from Malaysia thanks to the Malaysia-Australia Free Trade Agreement (MAFTA). This is fantastic news for business between Australia and Malaysia. Your goods will, however, need to have a COO (Certificate of Origin) that has been issued by the Malaysian Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI). If you are bringing goods into Australia from Malaysia, TSL can apply for the MITI on your behalf. This is all part of our comprehensive freight forwarding service.
