LINX Global Forwarding, incorporating Smith Channon, has been managing the handling and movement of international freight for more than 130 years.

Importing

Importing is more than just freight movement. It’s understanding the strict controls and regulatory minefield that awaits any importer. Time is money – especially in importing, where the cost of not getting it right means your freight being delayed or not arriving at all.

We can handle any freight that needs to be brought into Australia

LINX Global Forwarding can handle any freight that needs to be brought into Australia. Our network of delivery contacts enables us to choose the right option for your company.

To bring freight into Australia, you need a broker who is accredited AND up-to-date with the ever-changing regulations for security and customs. Our vast experience in Customs and Barrier Clearance is one of the main reason our clients use us to import goods to Australia.

Exporting

Our global network of agents and organisations means we understand the various regulations in destination ports around the world.

The key to successful exporting is knowledge of the environment and regulations that exist at the freight’s destination.

LINX Global Forwarding, incorporating Smith Channon, has more than 130 years’ experience forwarding freight around the world and working in countless ports. When dealing with us, you can rest assured that your freight will leave its origin and arrive safely at its destination where we work with partners to ensure it meets the destination country’s requirements.

Customs Clearance

Heavy lift operation involving specialised lifting and rigging gear

Customs and Barrier Clearance is a core part of our business. We help our clients negotiate the many regulations, taxes, duties and quarantine regulations so their freight arrives at its destination safely and cost-effectively.

We’ve invested heavily into developing partnerships, understanding regulations and working with the authorities to ensure our clients don’t need to. Our staff are accredited and are regularly trained in the latest regulatory environment. Combined with our network of agents and partners around the world, our clients are safe in the knowledge that their freight will clear all the Customs and other Barrier Clearance hurdles quickly and efficiently, meaning less freight delays.

Import/Export Documentation Compliance

We also assist your business in complying with legislative requirements for import and export documentation. Our staff can guide you with advice on the requirements for various import permits or approvals and then assist you with applications to the relevant government agencies.

Furthermore, under Customs law, importers and exporters are required to retain all documentation for a period of up to five years. We can manage your documentation for the required time and electronically store it in our secure facilities.
