Sea Freight From Indonesia

Are you looking to transport your goods into Australia in the cheapest way possible? Transportation using sea freight from Indonesia is the best-value way of transferring goods the 3,500km or so to Australia from to this huge southeast Asian country. Ocean cargo will usually take between 16 and 22 days to reach Australia from Indonesia, and is ideal if the goods you’re exporting from Indonesia are heavy or bulky.

Air Freight From Indonesia

Shipping goods on an aeroplane is, of course, much quicker than sea freight from Indonesia, and typically takes between one and seven days. It is, however, pricier than sending it via the ocean. The total time taken will depend on factors such as where your pick-up and delivery points are, and how much inland transportation is required.

Import Customs From Indonesia
