NZ-North Asia shipping severely curtailed

Thursday 9th April 2020

Text too small?

The world's shipping services, and supply chains are in disarray as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. NZ is especially at risk, with shipping capacity between NZ and North Asian markets that are key to NZ exports were 35% down for March. 

Some exporters are struggling to secure enough containers and shipping space. 

However, for other trade routes for example the Europe and North America route is extremely problematic at the moment for securing shipping capacity and containers. This creates potential opportunities for NZ food exporters provided they can secure shipping capacity and containers.
