Freight service from NZ to Udon?

Post by nabanga » February 7, 2016, 1:40 pm

Does anyone have a recommendation for a sea freight company that can take a part-container from Auckland NZ to Udon, and then store it for a month or two. I would come from Vientiane over several trips to collect it.
Firms offering to take freight all the way to Vientiane are very expensive due to the opportunistic customs service on the Lao side, but a car boot full of stuff would pass through the border unnoticed amongst all the Tesco daytrippers.
Thanks in advance for any pointers.

Perhaps google and email the companies in Auckland if you aren't in Auckland? I suspect there could be big variations in the fees.

I recently got two quotes for some new signs for my work in Auckland. The second one was for $3,000; the first for $5,000. I nearly fell off my chair after seeing the first one.

In 2002 I had some household effects sent from Melbourne to Bangkok. We drove from Udon to collect them and my wallet helped move things I think unofficially through customs. It might be doable to get them through to Udon easily enough now without heading south.

I shipped a large box of stuff to udon a couple of years ago.


The receiving company was

ROSS WORLD INTERNATIONAL CO., LTD.,
15/F, S.V. Office Tower 1,
896/23-24 Rama 3 Road., Bang Pong Pang,
Yannawa, Bangkok 10120, Thailand.
tel : (02) 682-8000

Contact is
tavat@cwi.co.th

They cleared my stuff through customs and shipped it to my wifes house near Udon.
From memory, it is a lot easier to ship it in a Thai persons name, (I think).
Tavat can explain all that to you anyway.

If you contact him, I'm sure he could help you out
