We are experts in exports!

Use Hodder Logistics International to ensure your cargo is not delayed!

The timely and efficient movement of consignments from Australia to the world is essential for any exporter.

Largely due to international terrorism, governments are often impeding the export movement of goods. There is no difference in Australia; where increasingly there are restrictions on the exportation of cargo - be it the requirement for a permit to export or the physical examination of export cargo.

No one wants to pay additional fees and charges to banks on a Letter of Credit (L/C) due to lack of permits or the consignment missing the export vessel due to other matters; which should have been earlier addressed.

Staff at Hodder International Logistics know and understand the export business and have the technical information readily available to ensure your export cargo is not delayed due to the lack of permits and the like.

We are also experts at coastal movements: from one side of Australia to the other. Contact us to learn more!

    Safety Of Life At Sea (SOLAS) & Verified Gross Mass (VGM)

    From 1 July 2016, revisions to the SOLAS Convention, adopted by the International Maritime Organization (IMO), and applied as law for Australia under the Navigation Act 2012, and subordinate Marine Orders will come into effect. These SOLAS amendments will provide that:
    - The shipper will be responsible for verifying the weight of the container and providing the verified gross mass to the Master on the shipping documents. To do this the shipper can use either:

    Method 1 Weighing the packed container
    Method 2 Weighing all the cargo and all other material loaded into the container then and adding the weight of the empty container (marked tare weight) to calculate the gross mass.
    - Weighing of packed containers, or weighing of cargo and other materials if method 2 is used, is to be carried out using calibrated and certified equipment (such as weighbridges, platform scales, pallet or industrial scales) to obtain accurate measurements.
