Ex Australia - Door-to-Port Shipping
 
I have been speaking to these guys:

About World Wide Customs & Forwarding Agents Pty. Ltd.

and have been VERY impressed with the service on the sales and logistics side. One phone call deterimed that they could pick up my created bike from anywhere in Sydney and have it
  • in Moscow for $1,125 (sea freight - 50 days give or take 2 days max)
  • in Tokyo for $462 (sea freight - 21 days give or take 2 days max)
They require you have your own customs agent on the other end. Their website also allows you to get quotes and check routes online.

gx, I checked out your link and frankly I don't think these guys are good value at all for sea freight. I'm using Ace Pro Trans (Melbourne) - a hell of a lot cheaper, and you get a person to talk to, not just a web site..

Thanks - I'm just sharing information as I come across it - I'll check out Ace Pro Trans as well.

We were going to use Ace Pro trans as well, but decided to go with General cargo Forwarders (also Melbourne) recommended by the lady from the NRMA in NSW who deals with the carnets.

Price is almost the same, but got a better response from GCF. Not too bad so far, a lot an emails back and forth, but shipping and container booked (provisionally) to go to South Korea...:clap:

My bike is currently en route from Sydney to London using Tradelanes. They charged AUD 485 (under £250) excluding the UK release fees, which would be £250-odd with full service. Transit time is 39 days plus bike must have been deposited at their depot 6 days before departure. Departures are every Thurs. See Shipping back to the UK for full details.

Dropped my crate off today at ACFS - it goes on the OOCL Freedom, sailing sometime around the 15th and arriving in Busan on the 8th of May.

Ace Pro Trans total charges are $273, not sure what the wharf fees will be at the Korean end.
