Goods Export: Australia To USA
When you export to USA by sea, you can expect a transit time of between 26 and 36 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 enter USA at one of the country’s 360 commercial ports. These are the top five:

1. Port of Los Angeles                                 West coast, California state
2. Port of Long Beach                                  West coast, California state
3. Port of New York & New Jersey            East coast, NY state
4. Port of Savannah                                     East coast, Georgia state
5. Port of Seattle-Tacoma                         West coast, Washington state

Cargo destined for the USA’s East coast will often make a stop at Long Beach, California, before sailing south to central America and through the Panama Canal.

TSL’s Air Freight Services To USA

You may assume that ocean transportation is the best option for your consignment – and this could be accurate. However, after assessing your needs, our professionals may recommend you export goods to USA by air instead. This may be due to time restrictions, with air freight services to USA taking a maximum of just 6 days compared to up to 40 by sea. Air freight could be the better option because of difficulties or delays associated with clearing items through certain ports in Australia or North America. In some cases, your overseas buyer may specify that you employ air freight services to USA rather than ocean transportation methods
