Method Global can arrange complete freight to and from New Zealand for all exhibitors regardless of the size, by offering courier, air, and sea services to Christchurch. On arrival Method will arrange the necessary clearance requirements whether that is for product remaining in New Zealand as give aways or goods temporary imported for the event.
Method Global will then consolidate and hold products and arrange delivery to the event as required for each exhibitor, store empty packaging during the show and then collection after the event before arranging to complete the export formalities and returning the goods to the next destination.
Based on the event dates of the 20-24th November would suggest we work on the following
|Seafreight – LCL
|Seafreight – FCL
Would suggest that where possible goods of any reasonable value that will be returned after the event are moved to New Zealand under a Carnet to ensure a speedy clearance process.
All goods that are being returned to origin after the event should be on a separate invoice/packing list from goods that are give aways or will remain in New Zealand after the event.
All MAWB and Ocean Bills should be consigned to Method Global Logistics as a notify party and/or consignee to ensure they are released direct to us.
Please contact Method Global Logistics email@example.com or 64 27 520 2250 re the import of any seed or fresh produce. There are strict restrictions through MPI for the importation of these products. Please provide Method Global with as much information re the product names, presentation, quantities, and purpose as soon as possible to work through the special requirements.
