Australian Eastern States Representation
Bullocks Freightmasters International are represented in all Australian states which allows us to effectively cater to all of your export needs no matter what the Australian load port may be.
FCL (full container loads): Full containers of product can be shipped using the following container types;
- general purpose containers
- high cube general purpose containers
- open top containers
- flat rack containers
- tank containers
- flexitank container
- refrigerated containers
For more information on the above please refer to the specific section titled “containers” Please note that general purpose containers are usually held in good numbers in all Australian load ports. The other types however are only offered subject to availability but with early booking of the cargo the ocean carriers are better able to supply this specialised equipment.
LCL (consolidated, less than container loads):
Bullocks Freightmasters International are one of the premier shippers of consolidated LCL cargo ex Fremantle and offer weekly sea freight shipment to overseas destinations via the hub port of Singapore
Due to the physical dimensions of the items many oversized cargoes are not suited to containerised shipment. Accordingly Bullocks Freightmasters International are in regular contact with ocean carriers that are prepared to accept “breakbulk” cargo either as on deck or below deck cargo. To a small range of overseas ports Bullocks Freightmasters International can also offer shipment on a Roll-On-Roll Off shipping service. This service best suits shippers of wheeled/tracked vehicles
Bullocks Freightmasters International are well experienced in the movement of hazardous products in FCL (including tank containers) and as LCL consolidated consignments.
The use of specialised flexible vinyl tanks within general purpose containers is becoming more accepted as an effective means of shipping bulk fluids. Bullock Freightmasters International can assist in the obtaining, fitting of Flexitanks and their subsequent shipment.
