Shipping to/from Australia

Australia DGX PhotoShipping to Australia from the USA has some unique requirements that a qualified freight forwarder such as DGX can easily help with. Specific Australian shipping rules include:
  • Invasive species and their extermination
  • Import permits required by Australia for certain items shipping to Australia from the USA
  • General USA export rules regarding items permitted/not permitted to be shipped to various countries
  • Title validations for certain machinery and vehicles
  • The type of pallets that can be used
  • The types of vehicles permitted entry
  • Decontamination requirements
DGX is experienced with all of the ins and outs of shipping to Australia, after all that's what you would expect and that's what you will get.

There are also very specific rules when shipping from Australia to the USA which are not the same but just as important to be handled thoroughly. These rules include:
  • Insuring that your cargo shipment to the USA from Australia is safe to come into the USA and does not represent a threat to anyone 
  • Being sure it’s declared appropriately for customs clearance purposes
  • And that the U.S. government knows what's coming into our country 
It’s one of the reasons DGX is a C-TPAT member – to facilitate your shipments entry from Australia into the USA.

Whether located in Australia or the USA, these rules are important to both the importer and exporter, because one mistake can make a tremendous difference in whether you recover your property or whether the expense to get it back becomes so great you chalk it up to being a lost cause.

So whether shipping to Australia from the USA, or shipping to USA from Australia, do yourself a favor and use an expert. That’s what an experienced, customer-service focused freight forwarders like DGX does so well!
