Demand for road transport has been increasing faster than the growth in population. This has put New Zealand’s roads under increased pressure. It is anticipated that total freight movements on the transport system will more than double by 2040. Anatoki represents a change in New Zealand shipping -- the return of the coastal bulk freighter.

Coastal Bulk Shipping


New Zealand registered company Coastal Bulk Shipping Ltd are the owners and operators of the M.V. Anatoki

This small Bulk Vessel is ideal for moving Bulk Cargoes such as fertilizer, grain and gravel around the New Zealand efficiently and cost effectively.

With a loaded draft of 4.2 meters the Anatoki is able to negotiate shallow harbours such as Wanganui, Westport and Greymouth . This allows it to pickup/discharge its cargoes closer to their source/destination, reducing road haulage components of the cargo’s movement and in doing so reducing costs.

Since starting operation in April 2008 the M.V. Anatoki had moved 100,000Tons of cargo by December 2010. Clients have been impressed by the companies “Problem Solving” ability and the efficiencies brought about by moving their bulk products by sea.
