Frequently Asked Questions

How Are Your Delivery Fees Calculated?

Delivery rates for our shipments are calculated by weight.

For large but lightweight shipments, the shipment rate is calculated on the greater value between the shipment’s actual weight and the volumetric weight measures in kilograms.

Our volumetric (or cubic) conversion factor is 333 kilograms per cubic metre.

To calculate the volumetric weight, multiply W x L x H – WIDTH by the LENGTH by the HEIGHT of your shipment (in metres) by 333.

E.g., 0.6 * 0.3 * 0.8 * 333 = 47.95 kgs


Do Freight Assist Australia Provide Freight Warranty on their goods?

Yes, we do provide a freight warranty.

Our warranty system is called FreightSafe. Our dependable service protects the value of your goods in the improbable event of damage or loss. Providing peace of mind for all shipments to or from Canberra, FreightSafe guarantees the quickest claim settlement possible.

FreightSafe is offered our regular ongoing account holders and involves:

  • Up to $1,000 per consignment Standard Charge rate per consignment of $15.00 + GST
  • Up to $1,500 per consignment $20.00 + GST
  • Custom quote

All claims made under FreightSafe warranty for damage to or loss of goods must be made online using the claim form.


Do You Ship Hazardous Goods?

Yes, we are able to transport hazardous goods in Canberra and Australia-wide. To perform these duties safely, we will require several things on your end to ensure the legal transport of your dangerous goods. The shipper must supply at least the following details about the dangerous goods:

  • Name
  • UN number
  • Class and subsidiary risk
  • Number and type of packages sent
  • Quantity of goods being sent

Please note: While some restrictions exist for transporting dangerous materials, we can only move classes 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 9.


So, What’s your Fuel Levy Surcharge policy?

The below information relating to our fuel levy surcharge is added to all freight rates.

Fuel Levy = ((((CF/1.1)-CR)-BF)/BF) *0.32 


  • CF = current fuel (national average diesel price as published by AIP for each week ending of the previous month divided by the number of weeks)
  • CR = diesel fuel current rebate
  • BF = base fuel (when FAA started applying fuel levy; this is a net value, ex rebate and GST)
