The recent Suez Canal incident along with the effects of the pandemic has created a significant industry-wide challenge with many container shipping lanes from Australia affected.
In addition, the ongoing severe container congestion in Auckland / Tauranga is greatly impacting container shipping lanes to all New Zealand ports to both North and South Islands.
Given this, with immediate effect and until further notice, all container shipping prices advertised on this website and emailed quotations are no longer valid.
Until matters improve, certain container shipping lines have temporarily either removed or restricted services to New Zealand from Fremantle, Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney. Of the lines still servicing New Zealand, many have inflated ocean freight rates and are booked solid up to 8-12 weeks in advance.
Services from Brisbane to most ports in New Zealand is in a better state but prices have unfortunately increased with lines booked 4-6 weeks in advance.
We will offer quotations on a case by case basis based on available market rates, container and vessel space availability.
Our priority is to do what we can to keep you moving.
On a brighter note, our Vehicle Roll on Roll off service from Brisbane, Port Kembla and Melbourne to New Zealand remain unaffected and is operating as normal with advertised prices remaining valid.
