Over the last 19 years Magellan has built its reputation on handling large volumes of import cargo into Australia for our customers across a variety of industries, but especially fashion, textiles and other retail. What you may not be aware of is that exports is also central to our offer (and growing). Our exports team has considerable experience in Australia’s core export markets, including commodities and agriculture.
Whether it’s 2 small parcels, or 20 containers of cargo to be shipped, Magellan can advise on the most cost effective solution, as well as the benefits and drawbacks of different shipping methods.
Magellan currently exports cargo via courier and consolidated airfreight, as well as less than (LCLs) and full container loads (FCLs), on a regular basis, to destinations including UK, USA, Asia, and New Zealand. In fact, through our strategic alliances with overseas agents, we can service the vast majority of major cities worldwide.
If you are shipping to New Zealand, our Auckland office provides the opportunity for Magellan to directly monitor the door to door movement of your product. If your cargo is bound for another destination outside of Australasia, Magellan will work with our network of trusted agents to ensure your cargo is handled with the utmost care, avoids all non-mandatory delays, and meets the requirements of all local authorities at destination.
We can also guide you through the various documentation needed to ensure the export process runs smoothly. To start with our easy to use Shipping Letter of Instruction (SLI) can be downloaded from the resources section of the Magellan website (under Shipping and Customs forms).
Some countries are easier to trade with than others. For example, USA has strict pre-reporting requirements known as ISF / AMS filing. Magellan can guide you through this process to ensure minimal impact on your business, as well as advise what will be required to satisfy other government departments e.g. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
