Why use our customs clearance services?

There are many requirements when transporting goods in and out of Australia, and being knowledgeable and up to date about the latest regulations is crucial. For each different item you transport there will be a different list of requirements, whether it be import/export regulations, customs and quarantine legislation and tariffs, so it is important you seek an experienced and licenced customs broker. 

Transways Logistics International is capable of managing your customs clearance requirements, and we will ensure that as an importer or exporter, you meet the minimum legal requirements. 

This will remove pressure from your cargo transportation, resulting in the avoidance of expensive delay issues or possible fines. Import and export come with risks, and our ability to provide you with quality customs clearance services will ensure the success of your business. 

Unsure how to choose the right customs clearance company? There are three questions you must ask to find out if they are the right company for you:

  1. Are they equipped with the systems, expertise and skill set to service your freight and customs clearance needs?
  2. Is their pricing justified for the level of service they are providing?
  3. Will they disregard a smaller company for not bringing in enough business?

 As a professional, well priced freight service with well trained staff and industry leading procedures, Transways Logistics Services can satisfy all three of these requirements. Regardless of the size of your business or goods you wish the transport, you will be treated as our priority, and you will have access to all the key managers and personnel in our business as required. 

Tariff Concessions

Our customs management team has experience in clearing all kinds of cargo, including hazardous materials, restricted items, food products, concert cargo, building projects, cargo subject to dumping penalties and items requiring permits such as vehicles.

One of the crucial areas we advise on is helping your business gain tariff concessions when importing commercial cargo, where Free Trade Agreements are not in play and ensuring Goods and Services Tax and duties are calculated correctly. Last thing you want to do is either pay too much or too small an amount. Paying under, exposes your ABN, where potential customs fines and penalties can destroy a business. So don’t risk your customs brokerage with someone you don’t trust.
