Sea freight the AVC Trading way
AVC Trading has been importing large numbers of shipping containers into Australia from Asia via ocean shipping for more than 20 years. In 2007 we were acquired by Wesfarmers and have since run our sea freight operation as a part of Wesfarmers’ much larger sea freight network.
At AVC Trading, our approach to sea freight and containerised ocean freight is a little different from what organisations who import from Asia to Australia may be used to. Our unique service enables you to enjoy significant cost advantages on the sea freight leg of your freight shipping, while still taking advantage of your existing relationships for all the services around the sea freight service.
When you partner with AVC Trading for your sea freight, we don’t lock you into using specified suppliers that we nominate for you for the services either side of the sea freight leg.
This means you can achieve the most economical and reliable service for moving your freight from Asia into any port in Australia while still leveraging your current network of suppliers in both Asia and Australia. For services such as freight clearance, transport, warehousing, and delivery, we are more than happy for you to continue using your preferred partners or can help with this if required.
This is because when it comes to Shipping Solutions service, we are mostly interested in the sea freight component, as that is where we can offer the most value to our clients.
