Wallace International was contacted by a large national company in Melbourne regarding a substantial Freight project involving 14 x 40’ containers.  They had already placed this order overseas.

The German supplier arranged a CIF Term (Carriage and Insurance Paid to) which took the 14 containers as far as Melbourne Port with no documentation submitted for the process.
