Abstract

It is well known that within an economic region, shippers’ practice of logistics is shaped significantly by various factors, such as transportation regulation. The precise purpose of this paper is to describe these factors and their influence on logistics practice in the New Zealand context. 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.
