Transport Impact

Shipping is the least environmentally damaging mode for moving freight in New Zealand. 

Compared to land-based transport it is a relatively minor contributor to CO2 emissions.

Moving cargo by sea is also 7-8 times more fuel efficient than road transport, and nearly twice as efficient as rail, on a tonne per kilometre basis.

For our environmental integrity, coastal shipping is a safe and sustainable way to move long-haul freight, in addition to helping reduce road congestion.
