Sea Freight Companies & Brokers

Shipping goods by sea is normally the most economical way to import to or export from Australia. Even though it is normally inexpensive, there are many things that can go wrong in the process, and when they happen it suddenly becomes quite expensive.

You can avoid encountering these problems by choosing Wale Logistics as your ocean freight forwarder. With our help, your importing and exporting will be stress-free.

An ocean freight forwarder saves you from a lot of headaches

The first thing you’ll learn when you want to import or export anything is that there’s a lot of paperwork involved. In Australia it’s even worse than in most countries, and you’ll have to fill in no less than six forms when you import something or seven when you export something.

After that, you’ll find yourself in a nightmarish maze of jargon. To give you an idea of just how complex the jargon situation is, the list that describes some of the important shipping codes is actually named with a jargon name itself, that being “incoterms” (International Commercial Terms).

Fortunately there aren’t too many of the incoterms codes to learn, but if you mix them up or choose the wrong one, it can make problems for you. How a sea freight forwarder like Whale Logistics can help is by taking that pressure off you.

Imagine if you were dealing with an import situation entirely on your own without any help, and you accepted a contract from a supplier where they indicate EXW in the as the condition of shipping. You may not have realized that this means you have to do absolutely everything, including loading the goods into a container at the supplier’s factory and transporting them to the dock yourself.

On the other hand, if you are exporting and you agree to supply products to a buyer who has requested DDP terms, it means you will be responsible for everything from when the goods leave your factory to when they arrive at the buyer’s door.

EXW strongly favours the exporter, while DDP strongly favours the importer. Most contracts are somewhere between these two extremes, and there are many levels. The most common are FOB and CIF. As an importer, the minimum you should accept is CIF, which at least covers all of the costs and formalities up to the point of the goods being unloaded at the port.

This, by the way, is just the start. You’ll also need to know the HS code and correct corresponding description for the goods. Get that wrong and you may end up paying duty on duty exempt goods, paying the wrong amount of duty, or even having your goods impounded.

These (and a whole lot more) traps await those who are not properly prepared. Trusted sea freight brokers such as Whale Logistics save you from every one of these traps.

How Whale Logistics is better than typical ocean freight companies

For such an important task, you can’t afford to trust just anyone to handle it for you. Oddly enough, there aren’t any laws regulating ocean freight companies. There is no industry more exemplary of the “Buyer Beware” principle than the business carried out by ocean freight brokers.

You can trust Whale Logistics, just as many thousands of Australian business owners already do. We have experience in handling shipments worldwide, and we are fully up to date on the requirements for each country.

Whether you are an importer or an exporter, we will make sure your shipment arrives where it is supposed to arrive. The peace of mind we provide for our clients is what helps us stand out among sea freight companies in Australia.
