Shipping Documentation

JTM Cargo Management strive for the upmost efficiency in service. To do this, we must ensure the highest level of compliance when importing or arranging the import of goods into Australia. With a major focus on international trade modernisation and attention to border reform strategies, JTM Cargo Management takes pride in regulatory adherence, uniformity, data integrity and ultimately protecting your best interests. To ensure we maintain an extraordinary level of compliance from the word go, we pay particular attention to detail upon initial setup of each importer profile and their commodities database.

As part of the implementation process, we ask for your understanding and patience during the early stages as we familiarise ourselves with your product. By establishing such practice, combined with our advanced methods of recordkeeping you can trust in the integrity of declarations on behalf of your clients. All communication is retained in our database for future reference to avoid repeat requests, saving your staff valuable time.

When utilising our services for the first time, it also helps if you can provide copies of previous import declarations for each importer. Not only does this assist in our regulatory assessment process but ensures uniformity during the transition, upholding your customers expectations. Should we note any compliance issues, we shall inform you of the relevant details and option to pursue the matter at your discretion.

To Facilitate this process JTM Cargo is dedicated to providing our clients with easy to use and easy to manage documents. Please find below some of these documents.

Shipping Guide

At JTM CARGO we determine the cost of freight by the actual weight and volume of the shipment. Our Freight shipping guide below give a close to accurate indication of the prices it will cost.

JTM provide the following 3 point simple guide to sending your shipments:

Point 1 - Use Correct Packaging

Proper packaging reduces the risk of your important shipment being damaged during transit, or damaging other shipments. Please ensure you use outer packaging which is designed specifically for the shipped item. Also pad fragile items with cushioning or bubble wrap, separating items with individual wrapping where necessary.

Point 2 - Address your Package Correctly

Ensure the complete consignee name, street address and post or zip code, city and country of destination are provided. It would be beneficial to also include the contact names and telephone numbers for the consignee. Take care to place this information on at least two sides of your parcel (preferably on all sides).

Point 3 - Work out the Rate

Shipment rates are calculated based on their size or weight. Please see the following packaging examples to determine your package's chargeable weight.

Conversion and
Cubic Sizes

To calculate the volume of these items you must multiply the length by the width by the height, in metres:

Air Freight

1 cubic metre is equal to 167kg.
Above example has an actual weight of 15kg
0.40m x 0.20m x 0.30m = 0.024cbm
0.024cbm x 167kg = 4.008kg
Cubic weight = 4.008kg
Actual weight = 15kg
Chargeable weight = 15kg

Sea Freight

1 cubic metre is equal to 167kg.
Above example has an actual weight of 15kg
1.40m x 1.20m x 1.30m = 2.184cbm
2.184cbm x 1000kg = 2184kg
Cubic weight = 2184kg
Actual weight = 950kg
Chargeable weight = 2184kg
