Shipping Services into China – NewZealand Shipping


Following our announcement back in July 2020 (QEL as agents for NewZealand Shipping Co. Ltd. in Malaysia), look no further if you’re sourcing for freight rates or space ex-Port Klang and Penang into Qingdao, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Ningbo, and Qingdao. We provide a weekly sailing from Port Klang and Penang to the above destinations.

Fun fact: you must be thinking why NewZealand Shipping (NZL) but has no service into New Zealand? Well, let us give you a brief history. NZL started out t from New Zealand itself and it had its eyes on the China and Korea market.

In August 2012, NZL started its maiden voyage into China and Korea. Few months into this trade, they decided to start a representative office in Qingdao to help smoothen out the logistical needs and enquiries over in China.

Fast forward 3 years to 2015, NZL has expanded itself into the Hong Kong market and saw the opportunity presented in the Intra Asia market.

From here on, NZL decided to explore the Intra Asia market further which led to the opening of another representative office in Hong Kong and Ningbo. This led NZL to focus more on its Intra Asia market. Since then, NZL was awarded its MLO licence from the China Ministry of Transport.

Subsequently, NZL expanded its agency network to include Shanghai, Korea and eventually Malaysia. In Malaysia, QEL Shipping Services is proud to represent NZL, as agents.
