& Australia Freight Solutions

Your end to end supply chain partner.

Applied Logistics is a Kiwi owned group of companies. We have wholly owned companies in both New Zealand and Australia. We are here to help you navigate the minefield that is freight logistics. We thrive on a logistical challenge and we will be happy to present to you a range of potential solutions that will meet your needs in a timely and efficient manner.

Our Dunedin-based New Zealand team are focussed on helping your business compete both locally, in Australia and through our global network. Does your freight forwarder have competitive access to the Australian domestic freight network? Try us!

Our network of carriers is far superior to that of a single carrier. When you consign your freight directly with a carrier, they will move your freight in the manner that best suits their operational needs. The advantages of using Applied Logistics are:

    • Access to a large range of carriers
    • We place your freight with the carrier who is the best fit for your requirements
    • You have one point of contact for all of your consignments
We can offer you better rates than you can obtain directly from a carrier by:

  • Leveraging our volume and passing the benefits on to you
  • Having established relationships with a network of carriers, enabling us to negotiate better rates
  • Linking together multiple carriers, allowing us to utilise regional or niche carriers
  • Focussing on innovation and efficiency, allowing us to seek out the best option for you

Customer service is the cornerstone of Applied Logistics, we are here to help you navigate the logistics and transport industry. Along with great customer service we offer an over and above approach to freight logistics. We understand sometimes, you just need to have your freight delivered as quickly as possible and we can arrange this for you, whilst providing exceptional value for money. Due to our relationships, our customers benefit from our contacts on the ground with our carriers, our access to information and our ability to resolve issues faster. When necessary we can also get freight onto services that are over capacity. Freight delivered direct to you upon arrival and we have access to operational staff on the ground. We can provide:

  • Air freight charters
  • Helicopter hire
  • RORO Shipping Services
  • Ship broking
  • Barge/Launch Hire
  • Premium road freight
  • Two up teams
  • Relay drivers
  • Hot shots

Because we don’t operate our own fleet, we don’t have to worry about filling up trucks with freight. This means that we can be impartial when it comes to providing advice that you can rely on.
We will:

  • Tell you when we think there might be a better way to achieve your goals
  • Provide advice to help you prevent damage in transit
  • Tell you when we feel that there is a significant risk of a critical consignment not meeting its targeted delivery time
  • Work with you to mitigate risk and prepare contingency plans

Parcel freight.

In today's world, it has never has it been so cheap to move parcels around the world or across the country. However, this has come at the expense of customer service. Automated sortation machines mean that when something goes wrong, there is little ability to locate your parcel and speed things up. If you are looking for a value added service with real customer service, then talk to us!
