We offer a range of services to fit our customers needs. We can offer full door to door service or only segments such as packing only or shipping only. Get in touch to find out more.

BreakBulk Shipping

We can provide cost effective shipping arrangements to all destinations, shipping breakbulk cargoes on Roll-On-Roll-Off vessels. Find out more about Roll-On-Roll-Off vessels on our home page.

BreakBulk cargo can be packed as master packs or on bolsters. This is ideal for oversized items as well as vehicles, machinery, large pallets and tanks.

Contact us for more information regarding shipping breakbulk.

Container Shipping

We can provide cost effective shipping arrangements to all destinations, shipping containers on container ships.

Shipping containers come in various sizes: 20-foot GP, 40-foot GP and 40-f00t HC.

Contact us today for more information regarding the various shipping options and what works best for you.

*GP – General Purpose, HC – High-cube

Packing and Consolidation

We can consolidate forest products from many suppliers and package them together for export overseas.

We can package for shipment in containers or in break-bulk vessels. We know that it is better to spend the time to package correctly. This ultimately saves time and money at the destination when it comes to unpack and making the product available to the consignee.

For exports, we can arrange for product to be unitised either in containers, bolsters, or master-packs for shipment. All documentation, including Packaging Declarations and the submission of Verified Gross Weight (VGM) for the container can be provided.

Contact us for more information.

Export Documentation

We can arrange the exporting process from start to finish regardless of the commodity or destination country.

This includes such things as Packing Declarations, Phytosanitary Certificates, Chamber of Commerce Origin Certificates, and full shipping documentation, whether the product is shipped using Bills of Lading or Sea Waybills.


We can arrange any fumigation needs and supply Certificates of Fumigation as required. This can be to sterilise product or meet specific import requirements. It is often cheaper to do this prior to export rather than arranging once it has arrived.

Fumigation in New Zealand includes fumigating against the arhopalus beetle. The fumigation season is from November to April.
