Container from Australia


Recommended Posts

To give people some perspective on distances in Australia. I live in Cairns Queensland. If I were to drive to Melbourne from Cairns, I would need to travel 2,842 Klm, or 1,766 miles. This is exactly the same distance from Paris to Moscow. How much does is cost to freight a container from Paris to Moscow, then ship it to Australia. Thats the same distance. Most people dont realise the distances needed to travel in Australia. Last xmas I drove to Melbourne to visit family. I always find it interesting when the guys from the UK say they are driving their armoured vehicle to a military vehicle show. Such an endevour in Australia would require a considerable loan from the bank, just to cover the fuel.


Regards, Tim
