A Victorian father and son have been arrested in Melbourne and charged with importing more than 200 kilograms of "ice" through Brisbane.
The arrests follow a joint Australian Federal Police, Victoria Police and Customs operation that culminated with raids this week.
Melbourne Magistrates Court heard on Thursday that the methamphetamine was imported in a trailer-truck that arrived in Brisbane and was then brought to Melbourne.
Commonwealth prosecutor David Bahlen told the court that Patrick Cini and his son Rhys Cini removed the "material" from the truck - an "inert" substance earlier substituted for the drug - which was found at premises in Port Melbourne.
Mr Bahlen asked magistrate Sarah Dawes to allow a 10-week extension for delivery of the brief of evidence, which would include "electronic material", surveillance footage and surveillance device material.
Solicitor Anthony Brand, for Patrick Cini, 59, of Altona Meadows, noted that his client's wrists were swollen and bruised from an "enthusiastic" police handcuffing and that he needed medication for high blood pressure and to see a nurse.
George Defteros, for Rhys Cini, 29, of Point Cook, told Ms Dawes that he knew little about the case, but that a bail application may be made before the remand date in January.
Both men are charged with importing a commercial quantity of methamphetamine at Brisbane on September 27.
They are also charged with attempting to possess a commercial quantity of the drug at Port Melbourne on October 3.
The third man arrested, Rami Tawachi, 25, of Point Cook, also appeared before Ms Dawes, charged with one count of attempting to possess a commercial quantity of methamphetamine.
Like his co-accused, he did not make an application for bail and was remanded to appear in January.
