CFS/FAK Services

Via our wholly owned subsidiary Melbourne Freight Station, BFS Extra provide bonded customs controlled unpacks with industry leading freight availability timing and truck turn around times at our Tottenham warehouse facility.

On average over 90% of freight is available for collection within 24 hours of vessel availability at the wharf.  Add to this freight collections with minimal queuing and an average of 34 minutes load time and you can see why independent NVOCC partners just love our service!

NVOCC partners receive daily stock on hand reports highlighting each line of cargo that remains in the warehouse and the day in which storage is to commence.

Depot hours at our Tottenham CFS are 7.00am with last paperwork to be completed by 2.30pm.  The warehouse ceases freight delivery at 3.00pm each day.
