It has a huge population – almost 260 million – and those who import goods to Indonesia can market their products to a consuming class of around 45 million.

How Long Does It Take?

With TSL, you can expect sea freight goods imports from Australia to Indonesia to take between 16 and 22 days. The transit time will generally depend on the following factors:

  • Ports of departure/arrival: Shipping from Melbourne or other southern Australian ports will take longer than if your consignment leaves from a northern port in the north, simply because there is more ocean to cover.
  • Container type: Sending your cargo in a private shipping container will usually mean it arrives more quickly. Why? Because hiring full container loads (FCLs) means your cargo will be subject to fewer delays than if it shares less than container loads (LCLs) with other consignments.
  • Cargo type: Certain items will be subject to stricter and lengthier customs checks when they arrive into Indonesia.
  • Weather conditions: These can affect the vessel’s departure from Australia, its progression when out at sea and its arrival into Indonesia.
