Team Global Express & SpeEDI Cargo: A Success Story in Express Delivery
What to expect in 2024 – Logistics and Supply Chain
The New Zealand-United Kingdom Free Trade Agreement (NZ-UKFTA) is a landmark deal that entered into force on 31 May 2023. This comprehensive agreement reflects the unique and close bond between New Zealand and the UK, further strengthening our relationship by creating robust trade and investment ties. The NZ-UKFTA is one of the highest quality and most comprehensive free trade agreements that New Zealand has ever concluded, providing New Zealand preferential access to the UK’s NZ$3 trillion consumer market for the first time since the UK entered the European Union 50 years ago.
Market Access and Economic Benefits
The UK, being New Zealand’s seventh-largest trading partner, holds a crucial market for some key exports, with two-way goods and services trade worth NZ$5.3 billion. Over time, the UK will eliminate all tariffs on New Zealand exports, with 99.5% of current goods traded to the UK eventually becoming duty-free. This elimination of tariffs will allow New Zealand exporters to save approximately $37 million per year.
