AU - US Trade Lane
Looking for a freight forwarder between Australia and the US?
For the vast majority, terms of trade out of the USA are “ex works”, meaning that all goods coming from the US are controlled by the consignee. Consequently, the buyer has more control over the supply chain.
The process can become particularly complicated due to the size of the US transport network. If cargo is required to move across vast, landlocked areas, much strategic planning is involved to get the cargo from landlocked hubs to the major sea or airports.
Stockwell International can assist you with transporting your freight in the AU – US trade lane whilst understanding and adhering to US laws.

NZ - US Trade Lane

Similarly to the AU – US trade lane, these terms of trade give more control to the buyer.
