JSP Logistics (Formerly Japan Speed Pack NZ Ltd) was launched in 1990, initially operating as a product of SB International Freight Ltd a Christchurch, New Zealand based Freight Forwarder and customs brokerage.
JSP Logistics service was set up to handle the door to door delivery of Japanese tourist souvenirs and gifts that were purchased during their travel to New Zealand. The service allowed the visitor unencumbered and freedom to travel the country without the burden of carrying addition bags during their journey. Upon their return home their precious cargo would be delivered to their homes safely securely and on time.
The company strategy has been to employ Japanese citizens who understand the culture and service expectations of the Japanese customers. As well as being familiar with the needs of Japanese customers our people are experts in handling international cargo able to offer the best advice in packing, freight options and customs procedures.
