Domestic Shipping & Rail Freight

New Zealand coastal shipping is a fast growing industry and now a reliable, viable and cost-efficient freight option. As a Coastal Broker, we can provide containers and a service to transport cargo throughout all New Zealand ports, on a port-to-port or door-to-door basis.

From Bluff, Dunedin, Lyttelton, Nelson, Wellington, Napier, New Plymouth and Auckland, coastal shipping is a transport mode which connects the main centres of New Zealand and also provides an economical and environmentally friendly freight choice. Coastal shipping is the clean green choice based on emissions output. CO2 emissions in grams per tonne/km for coastal shipping is 14 grams, as opposed to 92 grams for road freight, and 23 grams for rail freight.*

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 vehicle transport via Ro-Ro vessels (drive on or drive off), vehicle transporter or containerised.

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.
