Thread: Shipping question...to the Antipodes

    Shipping question...to the Antipodes

    I need to ship a 3 x 4 pallet/box to Australia. Getting it from me to a port in CA is not a problem. How do you guys in Australia and NZ ship large stuff to yourselves? Is there a specific shipper you use? Do you share containers? I know when shipping to Europe, people will ship to a port where they have a container, store items to be shipped in the container...and when the container is full (cars/engine/wheels/body parts etc), it gets shipped. Suggestions would be appreciated.

    We use Schumacher to consolidate stuff to NZ. I'd be surprised if they weren't doing to Australia. Steve is the contact.

    May as well ask...never know

    In the interest of sharing a small "footprint" in a container, or possibly putting parts in a chassis being shipped, is anybody currently (or planning) to ship any large items to Australia in the near future? If delivery is not time critical, and I can be patient...maybe we can help each other.
    TIA...
