“Our Company has been dealing with Customs & Forwarding Services (Australia) Pty Ltd since 1978.
We find they are extremely professional in all their dealings with us. They always respond to our requests promptly and source the best possible shipping rates on our behalf.
We would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone to handle all Import and Export requirements.”
Commercial Refrigeration Supplier/Distribution
“We have used Customs and Forwarding Services for all our Imports and Exports since 1995. They handle all our daily import/export forwarding including container clearance, unpack and delivery. Where they really excel is in the handling of our large equipment project shipments, managing all aspects of the freight movement from our overseas supplier/manufacturer to our sites here in Australia. I recommend Customs and Forwarding Services to anyone who needs Import/Export Services no matter how large or small.”
“We have worked with CFS as our Freight Forwarder internationally for over 20 years. Their level of service, as have their staff, remained constant over the entire time. Should there be an issuer they will keep you updated & best options similarly for clearance, any size shipment. There are plenty of Forwarders to choose from out there but few can boast the same staff & great level of experience.”
