If you’re an Australian business looking for new markets for goods exports, why not consider the biggest country in southeast Asia? Indonesia’s annual growth rates are around 5% per year, and the country is expected to be the fourth largest economy in the world by 2050. It has a huge population – almost 260 million – and those who export goods to Indonesia can market their products to a consuming class of around 45 million.
Free Trade Agreement
The ASEAN-Australia-New Zealand Free Trade Agreement (AANZFTA) is an agreement between Australia/New Zealand and the ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations). It has eliminated many import tariffs for trade between these countries since it came into force in 2009.
In order for your goods to benefit from preferential tariff treatment under the AANZFTA on entering Indonesia, they need to be accompanied by a COO (Certificate of Origin) issued by an authorising body such as the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry or the Australian Industry Group. TSL can arrange this for you as part of our comprehensive service as an air & sea freight forwarder in Indonesia and Australia.
Freight Forwarding to Indonesia And Beyond
Freight forwarding is a specialised industry, and operations between Australia and the rest of the world are made all the more complicated because of our distance from the majority of other countries. While our nearest neighbour – Papua New Guinea – is just 6km away at the nearest point, our second nearest – Indonesia – is 3,500km away. This is huge compared to European and Asian countries who often share borders, making imports and exports much more straightforward. If you’re going to send precious cargo that far, you need to know you’re doing it with a freight forwarder you can really trust.
Air & Sea Freight Forwarder Indonesia
If you’re looking to export to Indonesia from Australia, you’ll need to decide whether sending the items via sea the ocean is the best option for your business. As a quick guide, air freight services to Indonesia take around 1-7 days with TSL Australia and are the more expensive option. They are best used for cargo that is relatively light and does not take up too much space. Sea freight services take longer, around 16-22 days, and are more suited to consignments that are bulky, heavy or oversized.
