Is largely moving as normal from most points.

Be-it with some reductions in service & periodic issues getting the cargo/containers to loading point.

In-particular in Italy and China.

AIR-FREIGHT:

Airlines are either reducing or ceasing flights.

Capacity is down a massive 80 per cent.

Likely to stay this way till June.

The figures (effective 01 June 2020) speak for themselves:

Import Entry Transaction Fee: N.Z Dollars 33.03

Export Entry Transaction Fee: N.Z Dollars 3.27

Airline passengers get a free service courtesy of the N.Z Taxpayer and N.Z Importers!
