Chris Kernot and his family migrated from New Zealand to Vanuatu to set up a much needed inter-island shipping service bringing his own boat over from his homeland. Very quickly, local Ni Vanuatu came to rely on Chris's inter-island transport service.

Chris subsequently went about establishing his own freight and customs clearance business, with an emphasis on shipping under the name, Reef Agencies Limited. This business set up operations on Wharf Road, Port Vila.

Reef Agencies was later incorporated into a more comprehensive freight logistics and customs clearance service for the whole of Vanuatu - Fr8 Logistics.

Fr8 Logistics has since become the major provider for support logistical services to other companies in Vanuatu and increased the removals business to the point where we are now the preferred packer to most of the Diplomatic Corps and Financial institutions in Port Vila.

Fr8 Logistics have established an agency arrangement on the other major economic center on the northern island of Luganville on Esptiritu Santo and offers both international and domestic courier services between the two centers.

The company has also extended into the Chinese freight market and has established an office in Shenzen.

Fr8 Logistics already offers support services to many companies for warehousing, packing and even distribution of their products. We have a strong knowledge of Customs’ importation and export requirements for Vanuatu. Our team have a high level of understanding of the procedures of exporting and importing by either sea or air. We have gained a great deal of experience by working with our various overseas agents and other local importers and exporters. Some of the products handled in the past as exports include: live fish, coral, beche de mer, sandalwood, lobster - all to various parts of the world.

The company now has a large fleet of vehicles and many full time staff. In spite of its size, we remain very much a customer-oriented business where everyone within the company is passionately involved in the day-to-day operation.

Our worldwide agency network enables us to move freight anywhere in the world andFr8 Logistics is looking forward to assisting you with your shipping requirements to, from or within Vanuatu.
