Dear Valued Customer,

Due to the recent earthquakes, you will be aware that transport infrastructure in the South Island has sustained major damage which will impact freight movements for the foreseeable future.

There will be implications in the immediate days but there is an alternative route and our providers are working on getting back on track asap.

We regret to advise that the alternative route via Lewis Pass will add a day onto transit times and will incur an additional cost of up to 10% on top of existing rate schedules.

For some of our services that use the Coastal Shipping Services, it should be business as usual, but there will be greater demand on these vessels over the coming weeks.

Your business is of great value to Gateway Cargo Systems and we would like to sincerely thank you for your continued support through this difficult period.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Yours sincerely
Gateway Cargo Systems (S.I) Ltd 
James Steel
