Responsible for managing New Zealand’s second largest exporter, Bearing360 was formed with a mission to provide both sustainable and competitive shipping solutions for New Zealand exporters and carriers.
We were founded in late 2018 by pulp, paper and packaging manufacturer Oji Fibre Solutions and freight technology solutions company Netlogix, following a period of increased pressure on exporters and unsustainable freight rates within the New Zealand shipping market.
Offering a new way forward in shipping, it is our goal to level out cargo flows, improve predictability and open the gateway to a range of new opportunities for our customers, regardless of size.

Bearing360 was launched during a time when the New Zealand shipping market found itself on rocky waters.
The call for a better system to allow for a consistent and fair price point aimed towards smaller exporters was clear - and with the rapid decline in the number of shipping companies servicing New Zealand, a solution was desperately needed.
Through the use of integrated, cutting edge technology, we work closely with exporters, importers, coastal shippers and shipping companies with the aim of improving cost efficiency, service quality, and forecast predictability for those in the New Zealand shipping industry.
We leverage our scale to sit between both customer and the carrier to understand supply and demand capacity. Through these relationships, we unlock and share value that in turn, provides competitive and sustainable shipping solutions for our customers.

At Bearing360, we utilise data and supply chain insights to seamlessly provide ocean freight services to our customers through our simple yet smart customer portal.

Through transparency, comes certainty.

We believe that the New Zealand market deserves the support of shipping services from across the globe, and we’re here to make that happen.
Bearing360 integrates with a range of shipping lines and services covering all ports in New Zealand, this allows us to balance landside with ocean freight costs and find the optimum solution for our customers. By leveraging our scale and market presence, we aim to work towards increasing the number of shipping services that call the coast of New Zealand in our mission to navigate towards stronger trade for Aotearoa.

At Bearing360, we place a strong emphasis on whanaungatanga, the idea of a relationship formed through shared experiences and working together, which provides a sense of belonging.
Despite managing the second largest exporter in the country, we’re a close knit team ourselves. Community means everything to us.
It is our promise to work hand in hand with our customers to build a community in which long term partnerships are developed and extraordinary value created. Through our scale, we provide New Zealand exporters with more representation at the negotiation table, allowing them to feel a true sense of belonging.
Through shared value, comes shared success.
