Sea Freight FORWARDING and Container Services

The cost of Import or Export Sea Freight can vary vastly from Melbourne to anywhere in the world and from anywhere in the world to Melbourne. Without experts guiding you, not only on costs but transit times, available schedules, and routings, you could find the cost and delays escalating out of control, costing you dearly.  Container / Sea Freight is one of the largest expenses to any import / export business, therefore it is highly recommended that you consider your freight forwarder wisely, to ensure that you are gaining the best available solutions.

This is where our expertise at Transways, in being able to take the complex and confusing shipping terminology regarding sea freight and make it simple for you to understand and allow you to easily follow pricing structures, gives your business a significant competitive edge.

“Free On Board” is one of the most common forms of shipping, it poses certain obligations on both the seller and the buyer. It’s vital that you understand your responsibility under FOB Terms. Allow one of experienced team members explain this to you by showing you what your responsibilities are and the associated costs.  We will ensure you are not paying for services that your supplier should.

Be it Less than Container Load “LCL” or Full Container Load “FCL” 20’ or 40’ container shipping or even larger projects where Break-bulk, Ro-Ro or Mafi shipments are required, Transways has many decades worth of experience in all shipment formats.  Allow us to tailor a quotation for your sea freight needs and see why so many clients have been with Transways for several decades or longer.


A large amount of freight is sent via container ships, or international (commercial) air freight. Courier shipments play a significant role in moving smaller, in demand goods in a fast, prompt and cost-effective manner.  Samples, ecommerce, warranty, and spare parts items are just some of the varying goods moved via courier services on a daily basis.

Your business may not require a courier service regularly, but when it does, the major players are expensive and difficult to deal with.  So, trust Transways Express Courier Services, for your next International or Domestic courier parcel move and you will be surprised at the ease and cost effectiveness of the service.

We have great options via AIR and ROAD, both Express and Standard transit times.
