Freight Forwarders, importers and exporters are struggling with delays caused by increased fuel prices, the pandemic and war in Europe.
NZ borders are opening up which is good for air freight, but much of the country relies on sea freight.

“I think by the end of the year, people who are bringing goods in by air freight, or sending them out by air freight, will have a better situation that they do now. But for sea freight, borders opening don’t really make a difference at all and I think that’s the biggest challenge for us at the moment,” said and indsutry spokesman.

Impacts of the war in Ukraine and fuel prices haven’t fully hit New Zealand yet, but are expected to in the coming months.
