Port-forwarding services in New Zealand

We offer all port-forwarding activities at the ports to your requested destination. Our dedicated teams have outstanding experience in port-forwarding procedures for containerised, conventional and oversized cargo. We work closely with the main shipping lines (short sea and deep sea) and maintain direct contracts with all existing and operational port terminals. 



Based on your needs and the point of customs clearance, we pick an ideal shipping line and terminal of arrival or departure. After bringing your cargo to the port by sea (import) or road (export), we handle all local operations and arrange the further shipment on the agreed delivery date (import) or sailing date (export). For shipments we either use our own vehicle fleet or work with your preferred and verified road transport companies.
