Coastal Shipping Service Integrity

  • Coastal shipping is the most reliable method of shipping containers between ports in NZ
  • Vessel schedules are very reliable and are less affected by extreme weather in winter months
  • For many port pairs there are options available to allow multiple departures every week

Coastal Shipping is Environmentally Friendly!

  • Coastal shipping leaves the lowest carbon footprint of all domestic transport solutions available today
  • An ‘all water’ domestic shipping solution from Auckland to Christchurch is 7-8 times more fuel efficient than road.
  • Compared with rail, coastal shipping is nearly twice as efficient.

Coastal Shipping is Cost Effective

  • International shipping lines require their empty containers in the South Island for export to overseas markets.
    Our service uses those containers – loaded with your product – and delivers them efficiently and quickly.
  • Coastal shipping is consistently the most cost effective means of transporting your products around New Zealand.
