Discusses the various modes of domestic freight transport, as well as the deregulation and privatization of the transportation sector of the New Zealand economy. Also examines international shipping and airfreight in the context of New Zealand’s foreign trade. Identifies three sets of contextual factors (structural, regulatory, and developmental) that, in the New Zealand situation, shape shippers’ practice of freight logistics.
