About TGI Cargo

Your Global Logistics Team

Founded in 2007, TGI is a privately owned Australian project freight forwarder that specialises in moving project cargo and regular freight globally. TGI staff are trained in project cargo management as well all facets of cargo handling, specialising in land, air and sea movements.

As an agile Australian freight company, we have found that we can outmanoeuvre and outperform other project cargo specialists, because our team is a hands on rather than hand over team. We love what we do, we have a wealth of experience, and we know how to move anything anywhere, better than almost anyone, professionally, on time and on budget.

It may be that you need to move tonnes of freight daily over a life cycle project of 4 years, or you might just have to move a few out-of-gauge loads per year. TGI has a track record of over 30 years in the industry and all of our staff are professionally trained to manage your end-to-end logistics and most importantly safeguard your investment.

Our track record of successfully completing tasks on time and on budget is extensive. And even when something isn’t on track, you are kept up to date and a solution is found.

End-to-End Project Planning

TGI engages in detailed planning to reduce risks and resolve problems before they occur, including bankable feasibility transport studies and route surveys. We can cut days or weeks off a project timeline with our knowledge of transit routes, and we can ensure that you don’t underestimate what it will take to deliver on time and on budget.

From the first phone call to the de-installation, cleaning, packing, invoicing, loading and unloading, TGI coordinates your entire assignment. We can be on-site at loading, at the port of discharge, including port supervision and holding yard marshaling. Our on-site management is 24/7 when needed. With TGI you can be confident that we will handle your complex customs requirements and that your transit will meet all Australian and international standards.

Customised Forwarding Solutions

Understanding your business is our primary goal, as we know the high costs and loss of revenue that a day lost in production can cause. That’s why we offer ‘in house’ staff and daily updates on your supply chain management. We are always looking ahead of the game so that we can mitigate any challenges that may arise during a project.

Low to No Risk Transport Globally

TGI offers state of the art GPS/RFID asset tracking for all cargo and equipment in transit and on-site. Because we track and manage all freight, we can offer risk-free warehousing with a zero theft guarantee, Our state of the art technology and warehouse tracking through our RFID technology and security systems gives you the peace of mind you need.

Dependable TGI Networks

We have built a reliable partnership network of haulers including shipping lines and airlines. To ensure you have a premium experience, we have a strong working relationship with the Australian Customs Service (ACS) and DAFF (Australian Government, Department of Agriculture), CBFCA Customs Brokers and Forwarders Council of Australia and Frontline Australian Border Protection.

Continuous Improvement

Our team are dedicated professionals with years of industry experience, yet we never take that for granted. As a part of our commitment to continually improve our service, we conduct bi-annual evaluations of our staff and suppliers to strengthen and improve our supply chain. We always work together to upskill our capability and communication, making us stronger and more cohesive for the next project.
