We have vehicles to cover every situation:

Side-loaders, tail-lifts, hiabs, flat-decks, curtain-siders, mini-lifters, truck and trailers, courier vans and courier cars.

MAF and NZ Customs

Our yard and store are MAF and NZ Customs approved. This enables us to store your imports and exports whilst MAF and NZ Customs carry out their assessment.

RACA (Regulated Air Cargo Agents)

All of our drivers are RACA approved, giving them Aviation Authority security clearance to handle export goods.

NZ Dangerous Goods Licenced

All Philpotts drivers have dangerous goods endorsements, enabling us to cart dangerous goods in accordance with NZ Regulations.


We offer competitive storage rates to our clients. We are able to store containers (20- and 40-foot units) in the secure yard, and loose cargo in our expansive, modern warehouse.

Flexibility and client-orientated services

We are flexible operators—if you let us know what you want, we will be able to provide it for you. The owner-managers of the firm are always available to talk to you about your freight queries, and pride themselves on being able to find solutions for your every cartage requirement.
