A lot of freight companies apply a one-size-fits-all method for their services of freight from the UK to Australia, but we know this won’t give our customers the best experience. At Anglo Pacific, we tailor all freight shipping to Australia consignments to suit the specifications of each individual customer.
We have two main transport methods for our Australia freight shipping and a bonus method to assist the process; sea freight, air freight and road freight.
Sea Freight UK to Australia
If you want to send goods to Australia on a budget, sea freight shipping is a great option. It has the most economical freight costs to Australia and is therefore highly popular among our customers. Your items are packed into moving boxes and then we determine if sole-use or dedicated container shipping to Australia is most beneficial based on the number of boxes.
Sea freight to Australia from the UK in a shared shipping container means your goods are loaded into a shipping container, alongside the boxes of other Anglo Pacific customers. You are only charged based on the space your boxes consume within the container; ideal for customers seeking cheap freight to Australia.
Sole-use sea freight to Australia is favourable for large home loads or car shipping to Australia. You are allocated a 20ft or 40ft shipping container and charged one flat rate for the dedicated use of this shipping container.
Air Freight to Australia
If you need your consignment to arrive in Australia urgently, or if you only send one or two moving boxes, air freight from the UK to Australia is effective. The average time of air freight delivery to Australia is 7 to 10 days, in contrast to the average 6 to 8 weeks for sea freight. However, this speedy service comes with much higher freight charges to Australia.
Air freight to Australia costs are calculated based on the weight of your bags, boxes and suitcases, and so this option is only used when minimal amounts of luggage are being sent or in emergency circumstances.
Road Freight Services
Road freight is a bonus option when sending freight to Australia. Road freight is often the sole method of transport for the UK to UK deliveries, but it does make a great accompaniment alongside air and sea freight deliveries to Australia.
If you live a fair distance from our delivery ports in Australia, we use road freight to deliver the consignment directly to your door. It can often speed up delivery times as well as help to keep our freight costs to Australia as economical as possible.
