Understand packing and commodity risk material

Australia’s unique environment and important agricultural industries are free from many pests and diseases found in other parts of the world. But movement of cargo through international trade poses risks where unwanted pests and disease could be introduced. Consignment packing and specific commodity concerns need to be addressed before cargo arrives in Australia and equal consideration must be afforded for Australian exports to ensure compliance with overseas countries’ regulations.

Australian quarantine rules and regulations are some of the toughest in the world. Don’t get caught out. Seek pre-shipment advice to avoid extra fumigation, de-barking, sterilisation, incineration costs or at worst, re-exportation of your cargo.

MTC accredited with the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment (DAWE)

Under the Broker Accreditation Scheme (BAS) MTC have entered into a compliance agreement with DAWE to profile, clear and communicate any quarantine risk concerns. MTC works in partnership with clients and DAWE to protect Australia’s natural and economic assets from these risks whilst minimising the impact of this important sector on international trade facilitation.
