Delivering Shoes On Time and In Budget To One Of Australia’s Most Iconic Fashion Brands
Getting Australia’s children back to school was no mean feat (no pun intended), when International Cargo Express worked with Betts to manage their Back to School Campaign.
Coordinating the import of containers from multiple international suppliers, delivering to a central warehouse location on Australian shores and managing all third-party logistics requirements – ICE managed Betts’ end-to-end stock requirements from the start.
Containers were unpacked, ensuring loose cartons of physical stock matched corresponding documentation and systemised storage of stock was arranged to facilitate daily pick and pack requirements during the peak period.
When Things Go Wrong: Biosecurity
Real cases of imports that fell through and what you can learn from them.
Australia has one of the strictest biosecurity measures in the world. The same measures that protect our country’s biodiversity, can quickly lead to a costly process for importers and shippers if Government rules are not followed.
The Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment has zero tolerance for any error or mistake, even where every effort has been made to comply with treatment or document requirements.
Below, we outline some examples of these problems and share some considerations you should take in.
Why A Major Sporting and Cycle Goods Retailer Choose ICE
Long term partners of International Cargo Express (ICE) and Albini Pitigliani (our Italian forwarding partners), De Grandi Cycle and Sport have trusted our business to import their high-end products into Australia since 1986.
With three main suppliers across Italy, Albini Pitigliani have developed long standing relationships to manage the shipments in conjunction with ICE from Italy to Australia.
De Grandi is not only a major sporting and cycle goods retailer, but is also the Australian distributor for various leading international brands in the cycling industry. Brands like Pinarello, Wilier, Castelli, Deda and Vredestein, all market leaders in their field.
