Earthquake disrupts shipping and transport across New Zealand

nz-state-highway1aAs many of you will be aware, a major earthquake  has hit New Zealand causing severe damage in the top of the South Island and in Wellington.
All ferry crossings have been cancelled between North and South Islands and many roads have been closed impacting all deliveries. Therefore services from Auckland to Christchurch can expect delays and time frames are currently unknown as Ministry of Transport is now checking SH1 and the damage incurred.

Consequently, the demand to send freight by air is at maximum capacity and flights are also delayed. Therefore please be aware that there will be disruption to all services into the CBD in Christchurch and Wellington.

Our office in Auckland is expecting freight and we will endeavour to deliver as far as possible and to locations where it is safe for our teams to access and ensure all affected customers are kept informed.

The safety of operators and equipment is of critical importance and your patience and understanding is appreciated.
