Looking to export to India by sea? TSL offers a top-quality logistics service helping Australian businesses export goods to India. This merchandise is destined either for sale on the Indian market or in landlocked South Asian countries such as Nepal and Bhutan.
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 continues up until its safe delivery at its Indian destination. It’s vital that your logistics provider knows what they’re doing – and has great working relationships with those in charge of each link in the chain. With TSL, that’s a given.

Goods Export: Australia To India
When you export to India by sea, you can expect a transit time of between 24 and 32 days, depending on your start and end points. Your goods will leave Australia at the port that makes most sense financially, logistically and geographically. Cargo will likely enter India at one of the country’s 12 main ports, which include:
- Mumbai Port in the western state of Maharashtra
- Kandla Port in the north-western state of Gujarat
- Visakhapatnam Port in the south-eastern state of Andhra Pradesh
- Chennai Port in the southern state of Tamil Nadu
- Kolkata Port in the north-eastern state of West Bengal
It will then be transported by road or rail to its final destination.

TSL’s Air Freight Services To India
You may assume that ocean transportation is the best option for your consignment. However, after assessing your needs, our professionals may recommend you export goods to India by air instead. This may be due to time restrictions, with air freight services to India taking a maximum of just 6 days compared to up to 32 by sea. Air freight could be the better option because of difficulties or delays associated with clearing items through certain ports in Australia or Asia. In some cases, it may be the overseas buyer who specifies that you employ air freight services to India rather than ocean transportation methods.
