As of 25th March at 11:59 New Zealand has gone in to lockdown to limit the spread of the Covid-19 virus.
Shipping, the ports and domestic transport are considered essential services so we can continue to operate. The major concerns are non essential shipments congesting ports and delaying the movements of essential goods (medical, food and associated products). Not all New Zealand based importers and exporters are allowed to receive shipments so please check first before trucking is arranged.
We do have facilities to store your products through this period, either in containers or loose so please do contact us if you have these requirements.
2nd quarter rates are due out next week, early indications are that LSS will come down but the shipping lines are keeping capacity tight to keep the rates higher.
Please take care out there.
