Overview How It Works About Us

Until now, freight forwarding has been a challenge for New Zealand importers.
Unless you’re a freight expert, it’s almost impossible to:

  • find out who are the best forwarders from each port of origin
  • get a good range of competitive shipping options to compare
  • understand what’s included in an estimate, and how to compare it to that of another forwarder
  • leverage your buying power

And because pricing freight has been a complicated process for forwarders, often you have to wait days for an estimate.

The result has been time-consuming, expensive and potentially disastrous for your business if you’ve chosen the wrong option.
