Advantages of sea freight shipping

Lower price

Depending on the size and weight of what you’re shipping using a cargo ship is usually the most affordable shipping option. Get in touch with your requirements - whether you need a single item or bulk goods moved we’ll do the leg work to figure out the best solution for you.

Low carbon footprint

Many companies are concerned about the environmental impact of their business. A cargo ship is one of the most eco efficient way to ship goods so for this reason it could be the option you choose. 

Plenty of space

The average cargo ship can carry around 18,000 containers! That's roomy.

When not to use sea freight shipping

Leave the hard work to us to figure out the best logistics to get your valued cargo from A to B! Just as we will talk you through when it is best to cargo ship, we can also help you decide when not to use a particular service, depending on your priorities. 

Whether it’s for speed, tight deadlines and necessary arrival dates or tricky locations to pick up or deliver to, we love the problem solving aspect of this work so that you can relax knowing your goods will arrive when expected and in perfect condition.

The Rocket Freight promise

We do whatever it takes.

Rocket Freight will get your shipment to and from any location. The fun for us is in figuring out how to connect the multiple transport method dots. Cargo ships are limited to destinations with a coastline and a suitable port. In instances without those we will arrange transport across the land by train, plane, automobile or even Oxcart!

From the archives...

We do whatever it takes, and take care of the whole process too.

Any export or import process to and from NZ includes a lot of regulations (think PAPERWORK!). Rocket Freight knows these regulations inside out and can help you get your head around all the tariffs, customs requirements, and documentation involved. All you need to do is contact us and we will take care of everything, keeping you updated the entire way.
