Port companies are being 'screwed' by shipping lines
Shipping lines are 'screwing' New Zealand ports and there is nothing that can be done about it.
Importers’ Institute secretary Daniel Silva is commenting in the wake of Maersk’s decision this week to pull out of Timaru’s PrimePort. The worldwide shipping line has also announced another service for CentrePort in Wellington.
The new Southern Star service , which will link directly with Malaysia’s Tanjung Pelepas port, is expected to add up to 20,000 containers every week to the capital's port movements.
