Fees, forms and freight Customs Clearance services
Import and export duties and taxes, customs and excise rates, not to mention GST – customs clearance can be very confusing and complicated if you haven’t done it before. The Hawk Ellery team are experienced customs clearance professionals, so we know all the ins and outs, rules and regulations, and how to get your products through as quickly as possible.
We have a direct data interface with the NZ Customs service, which makes the whole process quicker and more efficient. Our knowledge and experience means we can classify your goods correctly every time, and give you an idea of what your clearance is likely to cost before it goes through.

Fuss-free freight Import and Export services
Whether you’re creating unique products and sending them all over the world, or bringing something into New Zealand, you want to know that your goods are being taken care of. Our import and export services make it simple.
Because we have connections to freight companies and agents all over the world, we can organise shipping for almost any product, to or from almost any place. We take care of the whole process, from packing, labelling, and certification, to unloading and sign off at the final destination.
We know that timing and cost are important factors, so we’ll figure out your priorities before we start. If you’re on a tight timeframe, air freight might be the best option, but if you’re more concerned about keeping the price down, there are other ways to go. It’s about doing what works for your business.
We’ll keep you informed every step of the way with our freight tracking service, so you’ll always know where your products are.

Reduce your risk Freight insurance
You use insurance for your car, home, and business – so why wouldn’t you use it for your freight? If anything unforeseen happens while your goods are in transit, freight insurance can make sure you’re not left out of pocket.
The type and level of insurance you need depends on what you’re shipping, how it’s being transported, and where it’s going. We’ll work with you to find the best solution, so you’ll know you’re covered whatever happens.

Taking care of business Third Party Logistics
Put simply, Third Party Logistics (3PL) is about taking care of storage, handling and freight for your business. Hawk Ellery’s 3PL services are designed to take these parts of the job off your hands, so you can focus on growing your business.
Our experience and expertise in storage, handling and shipping means we know how each process works. We also make sure to keep you informed every step of the way, so you always know exactly what’s going on with your goods.
Here’s how it works:
Big, small, sturdy or delicate, we can provide warehousing services for your products, so you don’t need to rent space or fill your garage. Storage options depend on the type of product, storage timeframe, and how often you’ll need access to the goods.
Handling is about taking care of your stock as it arrives, and when it leaves storage. We can receive, unpack, and shelve your products at our storage facilities – you won’t need to lift a single box. We can also manage orders and shipping for your stored products – we’ll get things sent and signed off, and keep you up to date throughout.
Managing your freight means taking on the responsibility of consignment, customs clearance, shipping, and loss prevention. We can ship, track, and report on the movement of your goods from our warehouse to wherever they’re going.
