Interstate Freight Quote

If you’re looking into delivering goods, cargo, and packages nationally, often road freight in Australia strikes a balance between cost-efficiency and speedy delivery. More often than not, road freight is the easiest way of transporting things between states, especially because some places are in hard-to-reach areas by any other modes of transport.

For an in-depth look into interstate transport services, Express Link will help you with all the information you need to decide if this mode of transportation is suitable to your business.

What To Know About Road Freight in Australia

Road freight offers the benefit of versatility in terms of what you can transport. It’s an especially attractive option to those looking to transport bulky and heavy goods across state lines and to some of the more remote regions of our country.

Some examples of what you can use road freight in Australia to transport include:

  • Electronic Goods
  • Medicine
  • Food (Perishable and Non-Perishable)
  • Construction Materials
  • Animals and Livestock
  • Temperature-Sensitive Goods
  • Fragile and Valuable Goods
  • Steel and Industrial Products
  • Dangerous Goods

Transporting via our roads is more cost-effective than air freight and faster than sea freight, which adds to its allure for businesses that need to send goods from Perth to Melbourne, or anywhere else in Australia.

However, as a general guide, several aspects impact how much you will be charged to ship items across state lines via road freight, including:

  • What you plan on shipping and whether it’s General or Specialised Cargo. Certain items, like dangerous goods, will cost more to ship.
  • The overall size, weight, and dimensions of your cargo – the bigger or heavier it is, the more it’ll cost to transport.
