Sea Freight

FCL - Full Container Load

Transworld's agents offer regular shipping services of FCL containers to all ports in New Zealand.

If you are shipping a full household you may use the whole container to yourself, there are 20ft and 40ft containers. With this service you have more choice of shipping dates and arrival dates to New Zealand.

Depending on the access to your home and your street council approval, will depend on whether the container can come direct to your home for loading. Once loaded the container will be sealed and taken directly to the port for shipping to ensure a fast shipping time.

In New Zealand, depending on the access to your home and your street council approval, will depend on whether the container can come direct to your home for unloading otherwise the container will be delivered to our depot for unloading, quarantine inspection (if required) and then loaded into a furniture truck for delivery to your new home. Please note that from 1st June 2015 ALL containers will be unloaded at depot and not direct to residence due to MPI biosecurity changes.

Groupage

If you have a small or a part household or just have one or two boxes, you can share the container with our other clients also moving to New Zealand. This is the most economical way of shipping and our most popular service. This service may take a little longer while we wait to fill the container to your destination but it can be a very cost effective option.

The cost of shipping is based on the cubic volume of your shipment, therefore you only pay for the room that your goods take up in the container.

Air Freight

The cost of air freight is predominantly much more expensive. The price is based on the Volumetric Weight or Actual Weight, whichever is the greater, of the items you wish to send. Although much quicker in transit times, the cost needs to be considered against the urgency required to receive the goods.

Some of our clients will send a small shipment by airfreight for essential items that they cannot do without whilst waiting for their sea freight to arrive with the rest of their effects.
