Goods Import: Australia To Thailand
If you’re an Australian business on the lookout for new markets for goods exports, why not choose Thailand? There are a number of reasons why you may want to export goods there. This Southeast Asian country has a growing affluent middle class and a well-developed infrastructure, for starters. It has also been ranked in the top 20% in the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business survey. What’s more, there are two economic partnership agreements between Australia and Thailand.
Free Trade Agreements
The first partnership agreement between these two nations is the Thailand-Australia Free Trade Agreement (TAFTA). The second is the ASEAN-Australia-New Zealand Free Trade Agreement (AANZFTA), an agreement between New Zealand/Australia and countries in the ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations). These two pacts have eradicated many import tariffs for trade between these countries. If you’d like to know more about what tariff you will pay when exporting a certain product to Thailand from Australia, you can use the Australian Government’s Free Trade Agreement Portal. This handy, easy-to-use search tools covers just about any product you may want to export.

How Long Does It Take?
With TSL, you can expect sea freight goods imports from Australia to Thailand to take between 18 and 30 days. The transit time for our reliable and low-cost sea freight to Thailand will generally depend on the following factors:
• Ports of departure/arrival: Shipping from Melbourne or other ports in southern Australia will take longer than if your consignment leaves from a northern port, 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 the consignments of others.
• Cargo type: Certain items will be subject to stricter and lengthier customs checks when they arrive into Thailand.
• Weather conditions: These can affect the boat’s departure from Australia, its progression when out at sea and its arrival into Thailand.
