AUSTRALIA: Busy period for custom clearance is approaching

Australia’s custom clearance will soon be entering the seasonal peak months of December, January and February.  During these months the normal clearance times for both Sea and Air imports will be extended to the below:

  • Air shipments   2-3 weeks as opposed to 1-2 weeks  
  • Sea shipments 4-5 weeks as opposed to 3-4 weeks 

Team Relocations and our partners will be actively working with the relevant governing bodies to ensure that the delays are kept to minimum.

Additionally, due to public holidays over the Christmas period, any sea shipment arriving after the 19th of December may incur wharf storage and or container detention.
