MACHINERY IMPORTING CASE STUDY
The process involved meetings regarding Import Duty & GST liability, inductions, logistic capabilities , site inspections Australia-wide and to plan trucking and unpacking of 70 containers on-site, into small areas and finally the strategic placement of machines into store.
14 x 40’ CONTAINERS PROJECT CASE STUDY
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. At this point, there was no consultation with regards to the Import Clearance requirements nor the Import Duty and Tax liabilities.
One of the projects that still makes us incredibly proud, is this one where an Antonov had to be booked to make things happen for our client. The Objective was getting an oversized machine segment (replacements part) from Australia to the UK as soon as possible so the machine could keep functioning without having to encounter an extreme loss on profit. The machine was going to take around 6 months getting manufactured and sea-freighted to the UK what meant millions of dollars on profit losses.
Tradeshows, Events & Festivals
We understand the level of investment that our clients put towards these events therefore we believe this type of projects require a special personalized care.
- Time sensitive cargo
- Venue timelines, restrictions, rules and restrains
- Venue access time slots (windows to deliver cargo)
- International and domestic freight clearance and delivery
- Safe and secure cargo requirements
- Contingency arrangements
You can count on our specialised team to get your freight to the place you need on time and in perfect condition.
EVENTS & SHOWS CASE STUDY
We recently customs cleared and delivered a 40ft container of stage show equipment into Melbourne under carnet. We were up against tight deadlines for the first show but negotiated the carnet and quarantine clearance swiftly without complications.
FESTIVALS CASE STUDY
We recently handled the equipment for a Theatre Festival performing in ‘Her Majesty Theatre’ Auckland. This cargo was 8347 Kgs 46.29 CBM. Due to the tight time line this shipment needed to be airfreighted from Adelaide to Auckland to meet the deadline.
Energy, Oil, Gas & Construction
Wallace International have been involved in large Oil and Gas Mining projects with staging and long-haul requirements.
Project cargo can relate to many forms, whether a single high volume/ valued consignment requiring specialist attention to long term (2-3 year) contracts with on-going monitoring. Project type equipment can vary from containers of Solar Panels for Eco-Farm construction, to out of gauge Oil and Gas equipment for Oil Rigs and Mining developments.
Our specialised team ensures a smooth transition of cargo throughout the complete International freight and logistics supply chain. Understanding the importance of an accurate, complete and precise scope of works by both parties optimizes the overall success of the project door to door. We ensures the overall management is completed with an experienced, motivated and professional attitude.
Ryan and Brendan! Thank you very much for all your assistance in arranging the transportation from China. We were 1st time importers so we have learnt a lot of lessons over the past couple of months. Your patience and advice has been greatly appreciated and we look forward to working with you on our future shipments.
Josh… thank you so very much for all you have done for me and the Festival over the past 6 months. Always so helpful, courteous and precise with your information. The freight was always delivered and picked up bang on time, which was the best bit, after all this time.

I have been with Brendan and Dallas for over 24 years and wouldn’t go anywhere else. They understand the industry and how it works, are on the cutting edge of any changes and developments and are quick to advise. Their service is second to none! I would highly recommend the Wallace team to all importers and wholesalers and I regularly do!
Although Wallace International provide a number of services, it is their unrivaled assistance and diligence in all facets of custom clearing, importing from Italy, China, Malaysia, The Philippines, Brazil and The United States is greatly valued. We look forward to an ongoing relationship with Wallace International and its staff in the future.
Just a short email to say that Dallas who has been looking after our Sea- Freight is a very efficient and courteous worker. It’s not often that Natalie has asked me to email suppliers we deal with, but she insisted that I let you know that he is credit to Wallace International.
