Economical Shipping and Storage in Australia

If you need to transport cargo from one side of Australia to the other and you are less constrained by time, then coastal shipping is an economical and environmental solution.  For those who plan ahead, the vessel may also serve as a storage solution for the cargo until it reaches its destination. If you have regular coast-to-coast shipments, it may alleviate the need for warehousing.

Results Focused Coastal Shipping in Australia
Our sea freight service for both containerised and break bulk consignments has proven to be highly price competitive for non-time sensitive cargo. Analysis from existing customers indicates up to 30% cost reductions over road or rail alternatives. Our representatives will be happy to provide you with a cost comparison for rail and road transportation.

Energy Efficient Transportation
Coastal Shipping in Australia is set to become the way of the future. According to the Bureau of Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Economics (BITRE) report entitled "Projections of Australian Transport Emissions – Base Case 2010", Coastal Shipping is, on average, approximately half as energy intensive per tonne kilometre than long distance non-bulk rail and one fifth as energy intensive as line haul road freight.

If your organisation is committed to caring for the environment, Loch M Fraser will be happy to share our knowledge on the benefits of coastal shipping.
