As of 12pm tonight 15th March 2020 all passengers arriving into New Zealand must self isolate for 14 days. This is response into the outbreak of the Covid-19 Coronavirus. More information can be round here.
This is an unprecedented situation and in our view the right one to limit the spread of the virus.
Goods are still free to move across our border, but the flow on affect is that there is now a lack of passenger aircraft to move goods on, which is the majority of the capacity for airfreight to and from New Zealand.
The good news is that the Chinese ports are now operational except for Wuhan so the goods can start to flow. The reefer (refrigerated container) congestion in Shanghai is now starting to ease. So space in bound as sea freight is ok. Outbound it is currently export peak season so bookings need to be made 3 – 4 weeks in advance.
