Stellar Services

Air and Sea Freight Forwarding 

Stellar International understands the importance in offering quick, cost-efficient and reliable freight services from or to offshore markets. We ensure the service used best suits your requirements with regard for two key considerations; 

•  Cost versus transit time

•  Mode used – air versus sea freight

Stellar Interntional holds well-established relationships with carefully selected partners around the globe. Together we offer a range of service and capabilities you can rely on. 

Because our partners are selectively chosen, we offer simply outstanding service at very competitive rates.

Warehousing and Distribution 

Since 2008 Stellar International has offered an in-house, fully integrated, electronic and online 3PL warehousing service. Although we work with a variety of customers, Stellar specialises in picking a multiple number of orders each containing single or multiple SKU’s which are required to be picked, packed and despatched regularly throughout the day.

We work within a modern, adaptable software platform that integrates with a number of customer ERP systems enabling an automated, seamless flow of data between our customer and warehouse.
Stellar prides itself with particular focus on three key KPIs which hold operational priority; 

  • Pick accuracy (we promise to maintain 99% > minimum) 
  • Timeliness of despatch 
  • Acknowledgement, processing and receipting of inwards goods 

All three KPIs are considered a high priority and are measured and shared with the customer either online or through regular reporting. 

One-to-one efficiency and attention to detail

The Auckland warehouse was established first, followed soon after by Christchurch.

By having distribution centres (DCs) located in both main islands of New Zealand, supply chain best-practise can be achieved in holding stock and distributing from both or either location based on final delivery point and/or current stock holdings.

This allows for optimum delivery times and offers significantly reduced trucking and courier costs. Both locations can be accessed through the same online portal simultaneously. 

Order status as well as despatch and “in transit” visibility, proof of delivery (POD’s), stock on hand, historical stock movements are just some of the online functionality offered.
