Freight Forwarding Services Auckland Australia

You might think Auckland to Australia is a short distance to ship goods by air freight or sea freight but you’ll still need to comply with regulations. Shipments require coordination to move from Auckland to Australia efficiently and reliably – that all takes experience and know-how. An international freight forwarder like BCR makes sure your shipments keep moving and arrive where and when they’re meant to.

BCR is the expert in high volume sea freight and air freight shipments. We specialise in full container loads (FCL) or consolidate high numbers of less than a container load (LCL) for reliable and cost-effective shipping.


Auckland economy

Auckland and its surrounding regions are located on New Zealand’s North Island. The city accounts for 37 percent1 of the country’s GDP and is home to a third of the population.

Being New Zealand’s largest city, Auckland also has a large workforce and unemployment below the national average2 that allows it to service its manufacturing industries.

New Zealand and Australia have a close trade relationship that opens Auckland to Australian businesses to source and export product. The country is also expanding export opportunities into Asia that further creates opportunities for Auckland to supply product to the region.


Transport infrastructure in Auckland

The Port of Auckland3 is New Zealand’s busiest and one of the most efficient in the region. The Port Authority has invested in technology and created freight hubs to improve productivity rates and integration of the port with the supply chain.

The Port Authority’s freight hubs are located in Palmerston North, Waikato, Wiri, Tauranga and Christchurch. The hubs use rail to move containers from the supplier to the export market.

Products that are high value, time sensitive or have a short shelf life are typically airfreighted out of Auckland’s airport located on the outskirts of the city.

BCR provides the planning and expertise needed to efficiently move cargo via New Zealand’s network of rail and roads to get product to the Port of Auckland or Auckland Airport and then imported to Australia.
