NZ IMPORT OPTIONS

There are many options available to your business for the international transportation of products purchased off shore for delivery here in New Zealand. 

 

These include Air-Freight, Sea-Freight and Land-Freight including LCL (less that container load), FCL (full container load) and Courier (door-to-door). Options all of which Hawk Ellery can arrange directly as per your requirement.

 

● LCL – Our less-than-container load service is a traditional shipping option for small ocean freight shipments not requiring the full capacity of an ocean container. Usually less than 20 CBM (cubic meters), Hawk Ellery creates a “Consolidation” by putting together multiple LCL shipments to serve as an economical alternative to air freight for smaller, less time-sensitive shipments.

 

● LCL Express – Our less-than-container load express service is a great alternative to existing traditional models. Quicker than your typical ocean LCL, and cheaper than air freight, LCL Express is an efficient way to get your shipments to their destination. 

 

● FCL  – Unlike LCL Shipping, FCL means that you have the entire container’s space to yourself and will not be sharing your container with other shippers. Hawk Ellery have long standing commercial relationships with key global shipping lines allowing us to offer you the full suite of FCL shipping options.

 

● FCL Express – Our express service is a great alternative to traditional transhipping models. By utilising premium shipping lines who offer direct services, it gives you shorter transit times and reduced exposure to delays as your container is not transhipping between two (or more) vessels.

 

● Out of Gauge [OOG]  – Hawk Ellery provides OOG shipping for companies that need to get oversized or abnormally shaped products or equipment from point A to point B. OOG is cargo that exceeds the dimensions of a shipping container by length, width, height or all of the above.

 

● Roll on, Roll off [RORO] – Hawk Ellery have global access to RORO vessels and services designed to carry wheeled cargo, such as cars, trucks, semi-trailer trucks and trailers that are driven on and off the ship on their own wheels or using a platform vehicle, such as a self-propelled modular transporter. 

 

● Breakbulk  – Breakbulk cargo is defined as general cargo or products that cannot be transported in or on a container by (seagoing) vessel due to their exceptionally large dimensions or weight. Examples of breakbulk cargo include construction equipment, manufacturing materials, boats, cranes, turbine blades and more. It’s true that attempting to ship oversized and heavy items is more difficult than more standardised cargo, but companies like Hawk Ellery are capable and ready to handle the job.

 

● Charter Shipping – with long standing relationships with ship-owners and ship-brokers, Hawk Ellery can manage full and part vessel charters to move large scale consignments both from port to port and door to door across the globe.

 

RESTRICTED ITEMS & BIO SECURITY

 

There are restricted products that require permits from various government agencies.

 

There are also specific products that are prohibited or restricted.

 

New Zealand has a Bio-Security Service that keeps out diseases and unwanted pests. 

 

All containers imported to New Zealand are inspected at the time of unloading. The type of packaging used for all LCL, FCL and airfreight shipments are inspected. There are restrictions on the importation of food, animal products, plants and other similar items of this nature.

 

Hawk Ellery has the expertise to deal with restricted items and biosecurity.
