The Ship­ping News

It looks like be­ing a big sum­mer sea­son for tour­ing in New Zealand, ac­cord­ing to Dave Mil­li­gan of Get Routed – In­ter­na­tional Mo­tor­cy­cle ship­ping ser­vices. Dave says, “In a sur­pris­ing turn of events book­ings are com­ing in so fast for our next sum­mer’s ship­ments to New Zealand that the De­cem­ber and Jan­uary ship­ments are al­ready full. There’s still some space avail­able in the Novem­ber and Fe­bru­ary ship­ments, but the cur­rent rate of re­ceiv­ing book­ings sug­gests they will soon be full. I would at­tribute some of this suc­cess to var­i­ous sto­ries in OBA over the years”. “In fur­ther Get Routed good news book­ings to Europe in 2017 have seen a big im­prove­ment on 2016 ship­ment book­ings. Of course the 2016 smaller ship­ments were mostly due to the drop in the value of the Aussie dol­lar (against the GB Pound and Euro) and the Gov­ern­ment’s var­i­ous an­nounce­ments about the prob­lems of travel in Europe. Those fears have been proven to be un­founded by Get Routed clients who shipped bikes in the 2016 UK and Barcelona ship­ments. As a re­sult it has been de­cided to con­tinue with an­other Barcelona ship­ment in 2017 and at this stage the ship­ment is over half full.” “Our an­nual UK ship­ment to Felixs­towe will go ahead again in 2017 and con­firmed book­ings in­di­cate there will be con­tain­ers out of Syd­ney, Mel­bourne and pos­si­bly Bris­bane. There are still 7 places avail­able for our 2017 Isle of Man TT trip.” All en­quiries to [email protected] or phone 03 5625 9080.
