MSC says that along with their expertise in reefer services, they have been working closely with exporters to fully understand their needs and to provide fast and reliable services which connect New Zealand to all major international markets.

MSC has established a dedicated and experienced apple team, based in Tauranga, with the sole focus of managing all apple shipments from New Zealand through to their final destination.
