Non-vessel-operating common carrier Shipco Transport will start a joint venture with its longtime partner and agent Profreight in Auckland, New Zealand.
Shipco New Zealand will take over all activities currently handled by Profreight in Auckland and will be staffed with the current Profreight employees. Gary Sayles will serve as managing director of the office.
“We are looking forward to expanding our local relationships and developing new services,” Sayles said in a statement. Shipco New Zealand will offer neutral ocean freight import and export services, as well as wholesale air freight.
Shipco is a subsidiary of Scan-Group, an international shipping and transportation company based Copenhagen, Denmark, and has more than 2,700 employees in owned offices worldwide.
