Planning Your Project

We assist in the early stages of project planning, providing insights and suggestions for the most suitable shipping methods based on your cargo’s characteristics and destination.

End-To-End Freight Forwarding

From documentation and customs clearance to cargo handling and delivery, we can manage the entire supply chain process efficiently.

Booking Required Equipment

We will arrange any specialised equipment required to facilitate your shipment, including cranes, flat racks, and open-top containers. Our full-service approach ensures that we can handle any project cargo.

Optimising Your Route

We optimise shipping routes to minimise transit times and reduce costs while also considering any regional or international restrictions.

Temperature Controlled

We understand the importance of preserving the integrity of temperature-sensitive goods. Our temperature-controlled freight services ensure your perishable or sensitive cargo is transported under optimal conditions.

Bulk Break (BBK)

If you are transporting large goods that are not suitable for container shipping, they can be shipped in crates, bags, boxes, drums or barrels. Our expert team will take extra care during loading onto the ship.

Export Insurance

Export credit insurance (ECI) protects exporters against the risk of non-payment by a foreign buyer. Our knowledgable team can arrange competitively priced third-party insurance for you.

Onsite Freight Station

Our onsite freight station handles all packing and unpacking. It is approved for foodstuffs, dairy & non-dairy, dangerous goods, and motor vehicles.

Warehousing & Distribution

We offer exporters secure warehousing and storage solutions to accommodate project cargo until it’s ready for shipment.

For import, a three business-day layover from unpack to uplift is standard but we can accommodate additional storage, just ask us if you need more time.

Customs Clearance

With a dedicated and experienced in-house Customs team and a direct online link to NZ Customs, we can ensure your project cargo is handled and processed without unnecessary delays ensuring timely clearance and delivery.
