Throughout history our oceans have been important to people around the globe as a means of transportation. Unlike a few decades ago, ships are now carrying goods rather than people and are a major part of the supply chain to get goods from one country into another. Sorted provides comprehensive export and import ocean freight services to and from all major global trading ports and design these with flexibility to best support our customers’ buying and ordering processes.
As speed becomes more and more vital to logistical solutions and businesses` daily operations, freight may need to be at a certain place as fast as possible. This is when our ability to operate closely with selected agents throughout the world comes in handy, because these people operate independently to provide customers with the best air freight services available.
No matter whether importing or exporting, customers will need the help of a licensed customs broker to lodge documentation with the New Zealand Customs Service. Fortunately, Sorted incorporate a dedicated in-house team of experienced customs brokers and trade professionals who will guide customers through the process.
We offer a great range of international freight forwarding services, including ocean freight and air freight solutions. Within both cargo solutions, we aim to provide the best available services and rates on the market. To do so, we access a global network of agents, ocean freight carriers, shipping lines, airports etc. with whom we have long standing relationships and organise all freight forwarding matters.
Our import customs services include the co-ordination and management of clearances with all appropriate community protection agencies plus we can assist importers with tariff opinions, duty concessions etc. This means we will find the lowest legal rate of customs duties for our customers. Our customs brokers also take care of quarantine clearances for all international imports at all destinations in New Zealand, and offer consistently high levels of clearance and border management, facilitating entry to all areas of the globe. In addition, we have MPI Quarantine Facilities meaning product stays in safe hands whilst it is with us.
