A FEW WORDS ABOUT US
Change in Leadership

Providing Support to the Community
Initiatives were put in place to offer a level of support to the community. Compass Shipping became an associate of the Inspire Foundation to support young athletes and is a major supporter of Canterbury Rugby.
Improved technology meant that Compass Shipping could close offices in Tauranga, Wellington and Auckland to enable a strengthened head office in Christchurch.
