More about this service

WELCOME TO AST SERVICES

AST SERVICES IS A FAMILY OWNED TRANSPORT COMPANY LOCATED NEXT TO NSW PORTS AT PORT BOTANY SEA PORT

home-1The location was chosen not only for its size (8,000sqm+ Hardstand) but for its proximity to NSW Ports, and is currently rated as one of the top three sites immediately outside of the Port zone, being no more than 1,400 metres from the farthest terminal.

AST Services Pty Ltd provide a range of transport solutions for intermodal shipping containers throughout the greater Sydney region and NSW. If you are outside of NSW we can arrange a special quote.

We are able to transport a variety of containers using our fleet of single and B-double trailers, and if required, our side loaders can place the container on the ground at your premises so you can unload or load at ground level.

Alternatively, if you have a warehouse, our trailers are designed to back directly on to docks suitable for shipping containers for direct load and unload.

We can also organise to leave a trailer at your premises while you pack or unpack your consignment and we will return at a pre-organised time to collect the trailer.

Can’t accept shipping containers at your premises? No problem! AST Services is able to store your containers until you require the consignment, and then unpack at our premises for LCL delivery to you.
