Service Announcement New Zealand | 04 November 2021


Mainfreight has received notice from a number of carriers announcing a reduction in freight costs for the November period. These reductions are with key trading origins in North Asia including China and range between USD 200 – 500 per TEU.
This is a welcome reduction in cost as we engage with carriers daily to challenge their competitiveness and seek out additional space and service opportunities for our customers.
