About FOB

PROFESSIONAL and EXPERIENCED

Freight On Board began in Melbourne as a one person operation in 1990. With a desire to grow the company through hard work and a professional and friendly service, we are today one of the leading and most well respected medium sized customs brokerage and freight forwarding companies in the sphere of international trade.

Like many successful businesses, Freight On Board’s true strengths are – 

Our customers

We sincerely value each and every one of our customers and without you we simply would not exist. We do not take any customers for granted and by continually striving to meet and exceed your expectations we feel that we are a valuable part of your business.

Our staff 

We have a carefully selected team who all bring different qualities to our company. Our company has the skills, experience, resources and the dedication to continually meet deadlines. We work very closely with our customers and see ourself as a valuable extension of your company. 

Our overseas partners

Over the past 25 years we have built up a network of overseas partners who have the same philosophy of delivering the highest level of customer service possible. This is essentially the backbone of our company being in a customer service field. We work very closely with our overseas partners to ensure that you as our customer are being looked after at all times and without these partnerships we would not be in a position we are today.

Our business constantly evolves to meet the challenges that are placed before us in the ever changing market place. Through a policy of continual self improvement and training we are able to keep abreast of changes within customs and quarantine legislation, changes in international trade patterns and new technology. This enables Freight On Board to deliver service and advice of the highest calibre. 

We are large enough to meet all of the complexities of your international transport and customs requirements yet small enough to provide you with truly personal service.
