Rates for ocean shipping to Australia vary depending on the cubic space that your cargo occupies in the shipping container. There are also different rates for different countries and destination cities. Please contact us for more specific information relating to your shipment.
Local destination charges apply upon warehouse release. These vary by location and are collected from the consignee at the delivery port.
