International Shipping Services
International freight and shipping services are global transportation services, normally offered by professional international freight forwarders . The services consist of arranging the international movement of cargo to and from international destinations. International freight forwarders are experts at organizing and monitoring all relevant activities pertaining to international sea freight services.
International Sea Freight Services
Less Than A Container Load (LCL)
CargoMaster offers international sea freight consolidation services (LCL) the most cost effective way to move shipments that do not require a 20ft container from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide (sea freight from other locations and remote locations can be collected and consolidated at the closest capital city) , Vessels sail weekly from all Australian capital cities. Less than a container load sea freight is charged at a per cubic meter rate or actual weight whichever is greater. All shipments have a minimum charge of 1 cubic meter, no matter how small your shipment is. If your consignment is small it may be a better idea to consign your goods by air freight.
All LCL shipments will need to have a packing list and all pieces (or boxes) should be numbered and labelled “fragile” (if required). CargoMaster is able to pick up your LCL shipment from almost anywhere in Australia. Once collected your goods are transported to a consolidation warehouse and consolidated with other consignments. Most LCL cargo is transshipped in Singapore. LCL shipping requires more handling than FCL shipping and as such you should package your shipment well for international transportation. Boxes that are 15-20kg are easily handled and help to save the container packers backs too!

The Commodity you intend to ship internationally
The destination of the goods that you intend to ship

The mode of transport you decide to use
How do you calculate freight cost per kilo?
To calculate the cost per kilogram, you will need to know the actual weight of the goods and the dimensions of the goods. When calculating the cost per kilo, you will need to check to see if your goods are chargeable at the actual weight or volumetric weight, whichever is greater is the chargeable weight.
