About Customs & Forwarding Services
The Customs & Forwarding Services’ story started back in 1982 in a small office in Berwick Street, Fortitude Valley. The owner at the time, Philip Mortiss, after working in the industry since 1974 for a Multi-National company could see that there was a niche market for a company that could offer genuine customer service and could add value to the customers’ business by being an extension of their sales, logistics and/or purchasing departments Since its inception CFS has followed a program of steady growth, quality control and ethical management resulting in adding warehousing to their services in 1983 and then in 1996 moving into their offices in Bowen Hills.

If you know that every hour that passes by of not having that piece of equipment means you’re losing thousands… then this is your solution. Equipment breaking down at exploration sites, factories and production facilities is one of the many examples where the downtime costs can escalate quite quickly if you don’t have a solution at hand. In these instances, a direct air charter no matter how small from a Gulfstream Aerospace G500 aircraft through to the giants of the sky an Antonov AN-225 could be the ideal solution for you! We have the contacts, processes and preferential tariffs in place to make it happen.
