About Us


Who We are

CSL are an Auckland based family-run specialist devanning company licensed to unpack imported containers and flat racks, and pack containers for export on-wharf at Ports of Auckland. We also do on-site devanning for importers with MPI Approved Transitional Facilities wanting to focus on other aspects of the business.

On top of devanning, we also specialise in palletising, wrapping, R-Coding & re-packing cargo in damaged containers, so it's ready for storage, cross-docking or shipment.

We create synergy through working with the port, agents and transport so your company can streamline cargo movements for rapid delivery, straight to your consignee store, eliminating double handling and delays.

We can provide all services, or if you have a transport company you prefer to use, we will liaise with them to have your cargo shipped as soon as possible.

All CSL staff hold an MPI Accredited Person certificate, as well as being certified in driving fork lifts & various other heavy machinery. We arrive ready to work until the job is finished.

Our services include:

Container devanning / vanning - both on-wharf and off-wharf at your MPI approved Transitional Facility.

We service several off-wharf warehouses within the greater Auckland area, with our on-site teams devanning at your Transitional Facility, freeing up staff and reducing opportunity cost to your business by not having your staff bogged down packing and unpacking.
