Takapuna Boating Club has partnered with Oceanbridge Limited to manage the Logistics for importing and exporting containers for the event. The following are details about Oceanbridge and indicative costs.
Oceanbridge is a privately owned New Zealand international Cargo Company specialising in airfreight and seafreight shipments to and from New Zealand including handling of the full trucking and customs clearance procedures required. We have been in the business of freight & logistics for more than 30 years.
During this time we have worked closely with the yachting and marine world specifically and in that time have developed a special skill and interest in handling boats.
We can provide you with the full package to/from any country around the world through our dedicated Marine Trade Team.
2. New Zealand Import/Export Customs and Quarantine Requirements
MAF/Biosecurity - Background
One of New Zealand's greatest assets is its relative geographical isolation. Less than 10% of the world's pests and diseases occur in New Zealand. Being a small island country, known for its lush vegetation, farming and natural beauty, major parts of the economy are dependent on the country's environment. That is why just one new pest or disease could be devastating. It is the job of MAF to ensure that New Zealand remains free from harmful pests & diseases. Strict laws are in place for all travellers and belongings entering New Zealand (by air or sea).
