New Zealand is an island country which lies in the southwest area of the Pacific Ocean, roughly 900 miles to the east of Australia. New Zealand benefits from one of the most globalised economies in the world and is heavily dependent on international trade. The country has developed excellent trade links with nearby Australia, China, the European Union, the United States, South Korea, Canada and Japan.
The UK and New Zealand have always benefitted from a close relationship, with many people from the UK choosing to relocate to both the North and South Island. With the increasing number of people relocating to the country, many couriers are developing faster routes and competing for the best price for parcel delivery.
The most common areas for delivery are the capital city of Wellington and the most populated city of Auckland. Although, the well-developed infrastructure will allow for fast and affordable delivery to almost anywhere in the country.
