GAL Newsletter

16 July 2019

Hello GAL Family!

Life is busy, work is busy, and it can be hard to keep track of all that’s going on in the world. This is especially true in logistics, where freight rates, customs regulations, and vendor capabilities seemingly change overnight. We want to make it easier on all of our GAL members who don’t have the time to stay up to date on all the latest information. Do customs require new documentation or information to be listed on BLs? We want to know! Maybe your country has an upcoming holiday that will affect the flow of goods coming in or going out? Tell us about it! We’ll collect all of this information and send out a monthly newsletter so any changes will not come as a surprise.

In addition, we’ll be highlighting one member of the network every month to provide a more in depth look into their business. While this newsletter is not meant to be a comprehensive overview, it will hopefully give you a broad idea of each company’s capabilities and spurn ideas for future cooperation.

I look forward to hearing your feedback and am open to any suggestions that will help facilitate cooperation and news sharing amongst members. Don’t forget, if you’d like your company featured in an upcoming newsletter, please reach out to GAL and we will tell you how!

Welcome to our first Members Monthly Newsletter! Our goal is to highlight a member each month to create visibility and cooperation within our network!

Without further ado, meet SEAWAY LOGISTICS!

Seaway are proudly among the largest diversified transport and logistics providers in Australia.
From modest beginnings in 1999, we have grown steadily by working with our customers and always finding a
better way. With our foundation as a shipping agent, Seaway has since developed forwarding, logistics, refrigerated, air freight, intermodal, and warehousing facilities throughout Australia and New Zealand

Our Projects team is amongst the project leaders of Australia in completing several projects over the past 12 – 24 months. Projects ranging from coastal charters to remote areas, mine to market commodities, to heavy lift with several cargo +100MT, +200MT, and +400MT @12,000 CBM in a single lift in the ship unloader completer recently in June 2019.

Anyone who has shipped to Australia is familiar with the dreaded BMSB (stink bug) season. Fumigation can often pose a challenge for overseas agents unfamiliar with the process. Seaway is here to make your life easier!
Our Melbourne Warehouse will soon be able to fumigate in-house.

So you handle cargo to/from Australia?
