GRI Update

Please see below cost adjustments affecting both import and export shipments to and from New Zealand. We continue to receive updated rates from carriers on a regular basis. We are regularly engaging with shipping lines to discuss increased allocations and challenging market competitiveness for our customers.  Additionally, we continue to promote a multi-mode supply approach given the environment.  Please discuss with your local Mainfreight contacts how this can be achieved.
If you have any questions to how these cost adjustments will affect upcoming shipments please reach out to your local Mainfreight Account Manager.
