We can perform many of the tasks involved from collection of cargo, packing and inland transport through to Customs clearance and delivery at destination point.

LCL Sea-Freight

  • LCL (Less than a Container Load) is the method of freighting cargo not large enough to warrant the cost of a full container load.
  • This method is ideal for cartons, pallets and crates that cannot fill an entire 20 or 40 foot sea freight container.
  • We access regular sailings via connections to our Southern deep water ports of Townsville and Brisbane to facilitate movements to/from all major ports worldwide.
  • You pay only for the space used, but not for a whole sea freight container, and the transit time will be the same as if you would ship a full container.

FCL Sea-Freight

  • FCL  is an acronym for Full container load. FCL provides you with sole use of a metal shipping container and is the method of freighting cargo that requires containerisation due to size, weight or nature of the commodity.
  • We can position the container at your doorstep for loading/unloading or you can use our facilities.
  • From Cairns we access regular sailings via road and rail connections to our Southern deep water ports of Townsville and Brisbane to facilitate movements to/from all major ports worldwide.
