We can provide transport options to move your cargo throughout New Zealand via Sea, Rail or Road.


Coastal Shipping

From Bluff, Dunedin, Lyttelton, Nelson, Wellington, Napier, Tauranga, Auckland and Marsden Point, coastal shipping is a transport mode which connects the main centres of New Zealand and also provides an economical and environmentally friendly freight choice.

With Coastal Shipping, we can provide a container service to transport cargo throughout all New Zealand ports, on a port-to-port or door-to-door basis.

We source and provide 20′ and 40′ containers, high cube containers, side opener containers, flat racks and open top containers for use with coastal transits or on longer term lease agreements.

We also arrange inter-island too. We can arrange FCL (full container loads), Ro-Ro vessels (drive on or drive off) and Break-Bulk options for transporting cargo.

RoRo Shipping

Pinnacle Logistics ships vehicles to many of New Zealand’s main ports; Auckland, Wellington, Nelson and Christchurch.

RoRo, or Roll-on Roll-off, is an economical way to ship any wheeled vehicle.

The vehicle is driven onto the ship and secured safely under the deck, protected from the weather.

RoRo is not just for cars and trucks. Large wheeled vehicles, including trailers, excavators, cranes, and other machinery can all be shipped RoRo.

We also offer vehicle transport as transporting by road, or combining sea and road may offer the best door to door solution.

Rail Freight

Rail freight is another of our services we offer to complete the domestic containerised package.

The New Zealand rail freight network and infrastructure have improved immensely over the last five years and now offer fixed container shuttle services between the main cities of New Zealand. Your container can be real-time tracked throughout its journey and any congestion or delays, well publicised to customers.

Road Freight

We have a number of supplier contracts across the roading network and can organise transport of FCL (full container loads) and LCL (less than a container load).
