Export To India With TSL
So what makes TSL the best exporter from Australia to India? Our product is a result of many years’ direct operational contribution to freight forwarding throughout Australia, New Zealand, China, south-east Asia, South Asia, America and Europe.
Sea Freight Forwarding: India And Beyond
Mumbai Port, in the western Indian state of Maharashtra, is the biggest seaport in the country. India is a large country with around 12 significant ports, including:
On arrival on India’s shores, goods will then be forwarded by road or rail to their end destination. This may not be within India – perhaps you need to transport goods onto Bangladesh or landlocked countries such as Nepal or Bhutan.
TSL’s Ocean Freight Services To India
Ocean transit from Australia to India takes between 24 and 42 days, depending on whereabouts you are sending it – not bad considering there’s at least 5,500km to cover (and probably more unless you happen to be shipping from Port Hedland to Kanyakumari, India’s southernmost tip!). At TSL, we’re proud of our fantastic relationships with shipping lines all over the world. As part of our service in sea freight forwarding to India, we’ll trim down prices to secure you fantastic deals on ocean transportation.
TSL’s Air Freight Services To India
It may more sense to export to India by air instead. This could be because of time restrictions and sailing schedules or because of difficulties or delays associated with clearing items through certain ports. In some cases, your overseas buyer will specify that they prefer air freight over ocean freight. Sending freight by air is naturally much quicker than ocean freight services to India, with transit times a maximum of six days – and sometimes as fast as one day.
Goods Export Australia to India: Inland Travel
When working out estimated journey times for your cargo, remember you’ll need to add inland travel into the equation. This is the time it takes to transport your consignment from its starting point within Australia to the sea or airport of departure, as well as the time needed for transportation in Asia. For example, if your goods are being shipped by sea from a location in western Queensland to a central Indian city such as Hyderabad or Bangalore, you’ll need to add a few extra days on either end.
Inland travel may be carried out via the railway or road network – or using a combination of both. As part of our comprehensive service in goods export from Australia to India, we’ll weigh up the advantages of each method and discuss your options with you. Your cargo will be forwarded to its end destination in our expert heavy haulage vehicles and handled using top-performing specialised equipment such as cranes and industry-approved trailers.
