International Freight Assistance Mechanism

More certainty for exporters as IFAM receive additional funding to support freight movements for the remainder of 2020. 

The International Freight Assistance Mechanism (IFAM) continues to support Australian producers export their premium goods into key global markets. 

Space can be secured through selected IFAM agents. Non-IFAM agents can also request space for eligible agricultural and fisheries produce on any Qantas services at qantasfreight.com, with priority being given to premium seafood, meat, dairy and horticultural produce.  How you book and any fees applicable can be found here
