Why The USA?
The USA is the largest, most competitive and technologically advanced economy in the world, and has a huge population of 328 million. It also offers a highly competitive consumer demand, minimal language barriers and great access to global supply chains, making it highly suitable for trade with Australian businesses.
Areas of potential for Australian exports to the USA include:
-Advanced manufacturing (aerospace, marine, automotive)
-Agribusiness (precision ag, agtech, food processing, aquaculture)
-Financial technology (commercial banking, lending, securities exchange, wealth management)
-Renewable energy (generation, distribution and maintenance)
-Edtech (K-12 sector, higher education and corporate/adult learning)
Shipping To USA: Sea Freight Or Air Freight?
When you export goods to USA from Australia, your items will travel 11,500 km at the very least – and likely a much further distance. The main mode of transport is of course boat or plane. TSL will assess your cargo and your requirements and work with you to decide which method is best suited to you. This decision will be based on a variety of factors, such as:
- Your budget – air freight is normally more costly to arrange than sea freight
- Your timeframe – shipping to USA by sea takes at least four times as long as air travel
- Your buyer’s preference – your North American contact may prefer you to use one transportation method rather than the other
- Type of goods – bulky, heavy and oversize items are better carried as sea freight. Smaller, more compact packages can be sent more easily by air
Our teams will look at all the factors and talk through the various options with you. Together we’ll work out the most logical and cost-effective method of shipping to USA – sea freight or air freight.
Import By Air: Australia To USA
It usually takes between 1 and 6 days to import by air from Australia to USA, depending on the availability of direct flights. At TSL, we’ll use our experience and longstanding relationships with top logistics facilitators to secure you fantastic deals on freight flights.
Import By Sea: Australia To USA
Shipping to USA with sea freight takes between 26 and 36 days, depending if you’re sending it to the East or West coast. The Californian Port of Los Angeles may be the point of arrival for your USA imports of goods if you’re sending them to the West coast. This is the biggest seaport in the USA and the Western Hemisphere, moving a colossal 9.5 million TEUs annually (2018). The East coast’s most significant port is Port of New York & New Jersey.
Below are the estimated journey times for sending goods from Australia to the USA’s busiest five ports:
Port of Los Angeles (California state, West coast) 26 days
Port of Long Beach (California state, West coast) 26 days
