SEA Containers and Sky City Great Waka Storage

Thursday, March 10, 2016

The team at SEA Containers was called upon by Naylor Love and the senior management of Sky City to project manage the safe transport and storage of a range of artefacts of cultural significance in order for the Atrium to be developed with the new Convention Centre being planned.

Shipping Container – Sky City Great Waka Storage

Partnering up with Shane Hegh HIAB's our task was to transport an 18 metre carved Waka to a safe and secure destination within Auckland.  Many man hours were required to plan the logistical side of this project due to the nature of it.  The Waka could only be moved after midnight, and had to be off the road by 6am due to its over dimensional measurements.

The Great Waka had to be dismantled into 3 pieces in order for it to fit through the Atrium doors.  With great care and a lot of nerves, the 3 pieces were stored in the Atrium for a few days until logistics were finalised. 

 The only way to safely manoeuvre the Waka pieces was to have special frames built on castor wheels in order to negotiate the doors, plus the Waka could be safely picked up by the HIAB without straining the carving which has significant cultural significance and is irreplaceable.

 Prior to the Waka leaving its home at Sky City, the SEA Containers team ensured proper protocol was followed with guidance and advice from Auckland iwi, Ngati Whatua. After a blessing from the iwi Kaumatua, Taiaha, the trucks departed for the storage warehouse.




Deloitte 2015 Fast 50 - SEA Containers NZ Winners!

Monday, October 12, 2015

The Deloitte Fast 50 index ranks the 50 fastest growing business in NZ according to their revenue growth over the last 3 years.  SEA Containers NZ is extremely proud to have won the award for Fastest Growing Retail or Consumer Products Business for the Central North Island region.

The team arrived at Deloitte House in Hamilton in the evening for the cocktail party, and left with their heads held high after winning the award.  Of course we stuck around to taste the canapés and celebrate by sampling some beverages from Good George Brewing company (also worthy winners).

SEA Containers NZ was launched in 2012 by our first man standing, Adam Frank (Central North Island), before being joined by Odin who looks after the Auckland and Northland region.  After 12 months of further growth we thought we better give the South Island our full attention so we were 'propped' up by Nick Moore.

Today we celebrate having our 5th team member Scott join the team as Operations Manager, to do the work we are all meant to do, but don't do, or intend to do.  Our team is headed by Lance Swain (joined in Feb 2015), also known as "M", who pulls the strings and keeps the well-oiled machine rolling.

The awards saw a wide range of regional category winners who all pride themselves on working hard and having fun, as the common theme.

Deloitte Private partner Bill Hale says these companies prove business success stories are thriving throughout the regions.

“These companies live and breathe innovation, challenge the status quo and have the determination and drive that’s seen them achieve phenomenal year-on-year growth,” says Mr Hale.

“A common theme behind their success is the ability to identify and then capitalise on a point of difference from their competitors. They do a specific thing very well and they really try and nail that niche.”

“A thriving community of fast growing innovative companies is fundamentally important to our economy,” he adds.
