KTL UK and our partner office in New Zealand, based in Auckland, are able to offer full Export services to the North and South Islands of New Zealand from the UK.
We offer shipping to New Zealand by Air freight and Ocean Freight.
Ocean freight is cost effective, however can take upwards of 50 days port to port, we can offer FCL (Full Container) or LCL (Part container, on a shared basis) from the UK to New Zealand, we are also able to offer refrigerated container transport for frozen or chilled goods, Flat Rack Containers for large or heavy items that will not fit in standard containers and open top containers for goods that are over the height of a standard container.
RORO Ocean freight is available for motor vehicles, plant and motorhomes, although New Zealand has extremely tight restrictions on some vehicles, so it is worth checking with the KTL team if it is permitted to export before you explore shipping options.
KTL UK are experts in shipping Motorhomes, Camper Vans and Caravans to New Zealand, along with other vehicles.
Airfreight is quicker, but of course more expensive and offers multiple daily departures from MAN (Manchester) and LHR (London Heathrow) as the main hubs in the UK, however other options are also available, speak to the KTL team should you require shipment from another airport or region. The main Airports of arrival in New Zealand are Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.
Having a good partner in New Zealand means we can assist with customs clearance and delivery to door in New Zealand and we can advise on Tax/GST and Duty matters should you require clarification.
It is worth mentioning that New Zealand take Bio security extremely seriously and they have strict policies in place for goods that could be potentially damaging, all wood items for packing need to be ISPM compliant, and any vehicle needs to be clean and free from dirt and insect infestation, recent outbreaks of “STINK BUG” infestation means that all vehicles require fumigation before export, KTL can arrange this at special discounted rates, failure to comply can result in customs inspections, fines and costs and in extreme cases destruction of goods. If in doubt please speak to a member of the KTL team.
