We would just like to take this opportunity to remind you of the importance to provide your shipping documents to us as soon as possible , we are required to lodge your documents at least 48 hours prior to ship or aircraft arrival to avoid any delays and allow sufficient time to submit documents if necessary to both Bio securities and Australian Border Force.
Cargo reporting for freight forwarding / shipping lines is subject to screening hold for 24 hours , as does the import Declaration for 24 hours port entry submission. What this means is that if the entry is submitted less than 24 hours Of vessel / aircraft arrival as a result of the screening period Australia Border Force may apply a border hold after Vessel / aircraft arrival, subsequently relinquishing all rights to a free storage grace period should the hold exceed the 3 free day storage period at terminal.
It is critically important that we have all of your documentation complete for submission at least 48 hours prior to arrival and in peak periods we recommend earlier to reduce the risk of your goods being subject to storage and possibly container demurrage charges.
We appreciate and thank you for your understanding.
