- Working with Us
Lodestar domestic distribution incorporates New Zealand based road freight, rail freight and coastal shipping with a focus on providing strategic freight management through network synergies, freight optimisation and delivery scheduling.
Overall we manage approximately 3,000 point to point freight routes with around 400 vehicle movements per day.
Rail services are utilised for the transportation of approximately 0.75m tonnes of bulk materials and finished products in the North Island. Rail provides an important link to major export gateways from key manufacturing sites in the central North Island.
Intra island transportation solutions can be provided through coastal shipping options between various New Zealand ports. Lodestar will co-ordinate an inter-modal logistics solution from manufacturing site through to final delivery destination which can incorporate coastal shipping legs as the primary transport mode where this provides the most cost effective solution for our customer.
