Streamline Freight was founded in February 1989 by Murray Butler and Scott Plant, who together had over 40 years experience in the Freight Forwarding industry.
The company growth was fostered under their management and expertise. In 2013 the Barker Transport Group acquired a 50% shareholding and worked with the existing owners and management to continue to grow the business. In 2015 the remaining shares were purchased and Streamline is now a part of a group alongside Freight Lines, Strait Shipping and Bluebridge.
Since its inception Streamline has continued to consolidate it’s position as a niche freight forwarder, specialising in the transportation of general goods, consumable and fragile products on behalf of its large customer base of commercial and industrial clients
We operate a Nationwide Distribution System from Auckland throughout both islands.
North Island main centres are delivered on the next business day with commercial deliveries generally achieved before noon, smaller North Island locations are delivered into the afternoon
South Island main centres are delivered in the morning of the second business day, with other locations delivered on the third business day.
Streamline not only moves bulk freight but also has a Nationwide Parcels Service, utilising pre-paid tickets, allowing our clients the advantage of being able to use one service provider for a range of distribution requirements.
Streamline Freight in Auckland utilises a mix of company owned vehicles and owner-drivers to carry out our city pickups and deliveries. Freight is consolidated at our Panmure depot for onforwarding throughout the country.
We utilise our linehaul vehicle for the Palmerston North and Wellington route, where we have agents in these two cities that carry out our deliveries.
All other North Island cities are serviced by our onforwarders who pick up their freight from our depot each night for delivery the next day
South Island freight is line hauled each night from Auckland to our Christchurch depot where our staff sort and load onto our South Island forwarders.
As an independent forwarder, Streamline offers personalised service and flexibility, in adjusting our services to suit your requirements.
We know how important the distribution of your products are to you and your customers. Our commitment is to ensure that they receive your consignment in the condition and time frame expected.
