Pallets and warehousing

Do you need pallets? Look no further. We can supply you with timber, plastic or metal pallets; all you need to do is contact us. Why don't you ask us about our competitive warehousing rates at the same time? We're here to help.

Focus on container weights

Three major maritime organisations met in India during August to discuss container weights and what can happen when weights are mis-declared. Various speakers underscored the importance of having the right container weight as it placed the ship, seafarers and workers ashore and the cargo at great risk. We followed along with great interest and have shared the article on our blog.

Happy Anniversary

August marks Mitch's 4 year anniversary at EES. Mitch is our Business Development Manager and can be found out on the road visiting our friendly clients. Contact Mitch here today for a quotation or just to say hi. Time flies when you're having fun, Mitch! Here's to another four years..

Due Diligence

It won't be long until the new Illegal Logging requirements issued by the Department of Agriculture come into play for the importation of Regulated Timber Products. Are you prepared? Head to our website to see what you need to do to cover yourself. Alternatively, should you wish to speak to us regarding this, please give Phil Gray, EES Customs Manager a call today.


Meet baby Torah

The 5th July was an unforgettable moment for Michele, our Imports Supervisor. Baby Torah was welcomed into the world. Congratulations to Michele and fiance Gareth on this gorgeous addition to your family (and EES').

Importer insight bulletin

The Customs Brokers and Forwarding Council of Australia (CBFCA) recently issued the Importer's Insight Bulletins which are several informative factsheets that assist importers in fostering a better understanding of the way that the supply chain operates. With topics like container x-rays and importers mitigation of risk being discussed, it's well worth a read.

Safety First

It's always safety first here at EES! With our new warehouse, we have had to introduce the staff to a brand new world of high-vis and hard hats. Check out Michelle from our Customs Department modelling this season's latest look.

Golden Anniversary

A special mention this month to Barbara in our Accounts Department. Barbara and her husband Nigel recently celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary (that's 50 years of marriage). Congratulations to you both on this amazing milestone.
Who said that shipping can't be fun? Certainly no-one that has seen this HUGE yellow rubber duck floating into port. This 60 foot tall drifting novelty sailed into Los Angeles port recently, and we can't stop looking at it. Check out some more photos here. Do you think that it would fit in the bath?
