PEAK SEASON - Airfreight & Seafreight

 

Dear Valued Clients,

With peak season fast approaching and the current worldwide Covid-19 pandemic, we are expecting this year to be unlike any other.

Due to COVID-19 effectively reducing air travel to a bare minimum, and as the majority of air freight moves on passenger aircraft, most businesses are moving their cargo by sea instead of air. The pure increase in volume of cargo on the water is putting a strain on space across all shipping lines and trade lanes.This strain often leads to overbooked vessels, vessel rolls, and port delays stemming from the higher number of vessels trying to move across the network. We are already having to wait some weeks to get a booking on certain Ports.

We ask kindly that you consider these delays at load and transhipment ports when placing your bookings with us.We expect the congestion to continue throughout this peak season,we will be doing everything that we can to secure the soonest possible solution for you.

Please also note that as a result of peak season and space constraints, carriers are already applying GRI (General Rate Increases) we are however working with all carriers and agents to monitor this situation closely and will advise at the earliest should this have any effect on your freight movements.

We’ll be in constant contact as changes occur, and we’ll continue to cover weekly changes in our Ocean and Air Freight Market updates we will continue to keep you updated and ensure all our valued customers individual requirements are as always, a paramount consideration.

Again however, we do strongly suggest that you consider the above when making requests for bookings throughout this peak period and try to notify our staff of your booking as early as possible.

Thank you for your continued patience and for your business as always.

Should you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact your customer service representative.

 

BMSB SEASON

Dear clients,

Here we are the 18 Aug & MPI have still not finally signed off the Import Health Standard for this season. Regardless, please see below based on the provisional information which is “ sure “ to be correct !

Italy

All sea containers and their cargo that depart from Italy on or after 1 September and arrive in New Zealand on or before 30 April of any year must be treated before arrival in NZ for BMSB.

(Sea Containers from Italy sealed in a fully enclosed container before 1 September and exported before 1 October, are excluded from all BMSB management requirements. MPI will require date stamped picture of the container seal prior to arrival ).

Sensitive cargo will be loaded into the treated container within 24hours post treatment and remain sealed before it is exported from Italy. Other LCL cargo will be heat treated at a rate of euro 25 w/m.

Schedule 3 countries ( see attached list which includes key markets Germany & USA )

Imported Small Vehicles, New Machinery and Parts thereof must be accompanied by a MPI Exemption Form if it meets the BMSB exemption requirements.

These Declarations ( Exemption forms ) must be made by the overseas supplier & presented before vessel cut off to be exempt treatment. The critical points are that YES goods were packed inside the factory & YES travelling in a sealed container.

( Kazakhstan, Moldova, Portugal, and Ukraine have been added to the Schedule 3 country list)

Thank you for your understanding and continued support.

Should you require any further information regarding your shipments please do not hesitate to contact us.
