US-Australia Container Shipping Process
As with many services like airline bookings or hotel reservations, planning in advance before international container shipping is advisable. At a minimum, you should allow for at least two weeks’ notice before international container shipping. The amount of time is also contingent on origin location and final destination. Depending on the amount of items that you are shipping, you may need a 20 foot or 40 foot container. A 20 ft. container holds up to 1050 cubic feet. A larger container like a 40 foot container holds up to 2,200 cubic feet. Our shipping company can help you estimate the size of the cargo container that you need for international container shipping from USA to Australia.
The documentation required for international container shipping is in part contingent on the origin and final destination of your shipment and the type of cargo. A qualified cargo shipping company like US-Australia Shipping can guide you through this process in terms of the required documentation for your particular container shipment. There are some documents that are commonly required and this includes passport information, a commercial invoice and a packing list and the shipper’s instructions. Required paperwork also varies depending upon what you are shipping overseas. For example, if you need international car shipping, common documentation includes driver’s license information, registration certificates, vehicle title, purchase invoices, import permit, and more.
