Turn that frown upside down—save with economical deliveries down under, to locations including Sydney, Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide.
With 24 years of economic growth, Australia is one of the world’s best performing economies, with exports of $257.9 billion in 2012, and imports of $263 billion that same year.
For those in the UK, sending a parcel to the opposite ends of the earth is cheaper and faster than you might expect, whether you’re sending a letter to loved ones or delivering goods to your customers in Australia.
As major account holders with DHL, UPS and TNT, we’re able to negotiate reduced rates on their services, saving you up to 70% of the cost.
Exporting to Australia
Australia has a strong relationship with the UK, politically and economically. UK exports to Australia have grown around 80% since 2007, particularly in the category of apparel and clothing accessories.
For small medium enterprises (SMEs), international delivery could be a viable, affordable option, broadening your consumer base without having to take a huge chunk out of your budget. Prices start at £29.18 for a 1kg parcel, £39.01 for a 5kg parcel, £55.11 for 10kg, and £87.31 for 20kg.
Sending documents to Australia
Sending documents using a courier to Australia? Our UPS Envelope service is a great option for your personal correspondence and urgent business documents, up to a weight of 0.5kg. Prices start at £13.95, which is less than half of the lowest parcel price.
The only condition? That your documents fit into a branded UPS envelope. All you need to do is select “document” when requesting your quote.
Customs information for Australia
As Australia is outside of the EU, if you are sending goods from the UK to Australia, they will need to go through Customs Clearance. However, we’ll help to make this as simple as possible for you by generating all of the documentation you need, including your customs invoice.
Please consult our list of prohibited and restricted items to avoid having your items stopped by Australian customs. There may be other restricted items unique to Australian regulations: please take a look at the Australian government site.
Some items may be subject to customs duties and taxes, which are not included in your quote.
Transit times to Australia
Transit times to Australia can take as short a time as three days with our express services such as UPS Express, TNT Express, and DHL Express Worldwide. Not bad for halfway around the world!
Other services can take longer, usually a day or two more but sometimes up to a week in total. Deliveries to remote areas will require additional times in transit.
You can use one of our carrier-specific transit time calculators to get a more accurate estimate using two postcodes.
