International Freight

  • As an independent international forwarder we are not locked into any one particular freight network.
  • We are free to form partnerships with appropriate organisations that offer services that suit our customers particular requirements.
  • Our multinational competitors can at times be locked into worldwide agency agreements where an overseas partner may not be the appropriate one to carry out the activity as directed.
  • Trust your cargo with a proven independent and their overseas partners (some of which have enjoyed a 25 year partnership with EDI) moving freight from their tradelanes and forging great relationships over the years with the Australian importers and their overseas suppliers.
