Looking to export to Germany by sea? TSL helps Australian businesses export goods to Germany with its top-quality logistics service. This merchandise is destined either for sale on the German market or in the wider Eurozone in countries such as the UK, France and Poland.
Freight forwarding is an intricate process made up of hundreds of different links. These join up together, forming a chain that starts the moment your produce leaves its source location in Australia and doesn’t stop until its safe delivery at its German destination. It’s vital that your logistics provider knows what they’re doing – and has great working relationships with those in charge of each section of the chain. With TSL, that’s a given.

TSL’s Air Freight Services To Germany
You may assume that ocean transportation is the best option for you. However, our professionals will make an assessment of your needs and your consignment and may recommend you export goods to Germany by air instead. This may be due to time restrictions, with air freight services to Germany taking a maximum of just 6 days (compared to 42 by ocean). Or it could be because of difficulties or delays associated with clearing items through certain ports in Australia or Europe. In some cases, the overseas buyer will specify that they prefer that you employ air freight services to Germany over ocean transportation methods.
