Most freight carriers (whether road, rail, air or sea freight) DO NOT offer automatic freight insurance in Melbourne. Certain things will be covered but in most cases it is your responsibility to ensure adequate freight insurance in Sydney for your goods. Consider what you are shipping and what the result is if you incur a loss. Too often people only start thinking about freight insurance in Darwin after it is too late, by which time it is too late to obtain freight insurance in Australia.
