Breaking Alert


Dear Valued Customer:

The Australian Department of Agriculture and Water Resources (DAWR) has issued new measures to protect Australian territory from infestation of BMSB.


Breakbulk, Full Container Load (FCL) and Freight of All Kinds (FAK) containers from high risk countries, including the USA, containing high risk and target risk commodities are required to be fumigated. FAK containers containing at risk cargo are to be treated at the container level.


With the aim of maintaining transit time integrity and minimizing financial impact, DGX will treat all cargo sailing from the USA to Australia at a DAWR approved treatment facility in Los Angeles.


Please visit for detailed information on the new regulations for the 2018-2019 season.


The charges for fumigation services for shipments in FAK containers are:


USD $37.50 w/m, Minimum $250.00

USD $10.00 Fumigation Admin Fee


Please contact your local DGX office should you have any questions.
