You’ll need to have a packing list when using sea or air freight, courier companies, parcel post and international post with a value greater than AU$1,000.00.

The packing list is required so that your freight forwarder can help you clear your goods through customs.  It also outlines the contents of what is in the delivery.


This document is different to the packing declaration that was previously discussed.

This document lists all the items in the container/package as follows:

–          Amount of items or pieces

–          Item description

–          Outlines what’s in each carton (if there is more than one carton)

–          Weight and the volume of each item code

–          And includes spare parts or accessories.
