AMI – a leading trade-only airfreight and express wholesaler – has opened two further offices in Australasia. AMI Darwin, located in the capital of Australia’s Northern Territories, has been opened in response to current and planned major energy projects in the area, including the AUD$34 billion (US$32 billion) Ichthy’s LNG project being developed. These projects are expected to drive significant growth and investment in the region, and will result in an expanded working population that will boost consumer demand, AMI said.
The new AMI office will provide freight agents at Australia’s gateways with a local presence in Darwin, that will avoid the necessity to operate their own offices. It will also provide AMI’s global office and agent network with access to the Northern region of Australia, as its potential grows as a result of the new developments. The AMI branch will provide scheduled import and export airfreight services, charter services, project forwarding, breakbulk, ocean services, clearance and local collection and delivery and will also offer domestic services by air, road and rail.
In Christchurch, New Zealand, AMI has opened a new base as a satellite to its existing office in Auckland with AMI Christchurch offering global export and import consolidations via major gateways including Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Los Angeles, Chicago, London as well as, key Asian hubs.
