A Very Special Vessel
When a valued client involved in automotive export contacted us about a shipment to New Zealand, we assumed that it would be for vehicles, but in this case, it was a vessel, not a vehicle.
On this occasion, the client asked us to ship a new yacht which he had just personally purchased.
The transport of this 30ft. vessel to New Zealand showcased our ocean freight expertise, with our team handling the shipment from start to finish.
"Our strong presence in New Zealand helped to make this project a success, with the team pulling together to transport some awkward cargo in an extremely efficient manner."

Ensuring a Smooth Sailing Strategy
The team at HGL’s sister company in the UK coordinated the collection of the yacht from the Swanwick Marina on the UK south coast by our specialist boat haulage contractor. We sourced and provided the necessary boat shipping cradles, which are essential for the safe and secure transport of yachts by sea voyage.
The road transport and container loading were handled safely and efficiently, and once we had arranged the export customs and documentation, the shipment was finally ready to depart.
It arrived in Auckland, overseen by our office in New Zealand, to the complete satisfaction of the end customer who can now proceed on their own ocean adventures in Oceania.

"This was an unusual shipment in that the cargo was returning to the UK via a different mode of transport to which it first left. However, it was good to know we played a small part in a project marking the centenary of the RAF."
