Tasmanian Freight Equalisation Scheme

Northbound goods

The northbound component of the Scheme applies to eligible goods produced or manufactured in Tasmania for permanent use or sale on the Australian mainland.

Eligible goods

To be eligible for assistance with freight costs, northbound goods must:

  • be manufactured in Tasmania for permanent use or sale on the Australian mainland
  • be transported across Bass Strait by sea as non-bulk cargo. That is, items not shipped loose in the hold of a ship without any unitisation or packaging
  • incur a freight cost disadvantage

Eligible goods are listed in the TFES Ministerial Directions - Schedule 1 on the Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities website.

Ineligible goods

Goods manufactured on the mainland or outside Australia are not eligible for assistance. Unless they have undergone a manufacturing process in Tasmania.
