How It Works

Merchants use existing domestic shipping methods to ship the order to the Shipporter export warehouse in Inglewood, CA 90303 or Brooklyn NY 11230 (for USA), Rainham, Essex (for UK/Europe) or any of five export depots (for China)

Shipporter is a sea courier shipping service which includes: origin/destination port & handling charges, insurance (up to AUD$50000), ocean freight, customs clearance at destination and delivery to your customers door (any Australian postcode).

When your order reaches our export warehouse you can track it online at our website.

You can ship almost anything with Shipporter provided it fits in a sea freight container. Please refer to the FAQ’s section of the website for additional information on what is suitable for Shipporter service.

Shipporter uses ocean freight so it takes longer than the express delivery shipping options you normally offer. The average transit time from the USA to East coast major cities in Australia is 4 to 5 weeks (from Inglewood) or 7 to 8 weeks (from Brooklyn)and to West coast and country slightly longer.
