About Us

Our Business


PBT specialises in fast, convenient and trouble-free freight movement throughout New Zealand.  We do this by being the best in the business at Delivery In Full On Time Undamaged (DIFOTU).

Operating successfully since 1972, we provide a fully integrated service moving small, large and bulk freight items. We also offer storage and distribution options.

Each of our 6 business units specialise in a part of the distribution process. Together they create a single service solution for clients wanting to work smarter.

The business units are as follows:

  • PBT Transport
  • PBT Couriers
  • PBT Bulk

With 22 branches nationwide, we have New Zealand covered. Every year we move more than thirteen million items from Kaitaia to Bluff - plus everywhere in betweennd because our network is so extensive, we deliver 99.9% of freight within the PBT system.

Our success has been built on getting the simple things right - like DIFOTU.  We employ skilled people, leading freight management technology and have a strong focus on innovation, communication and client care. Before we do anything, we take time to understand our clients’ specific needs. Then, we develop smart solutions that not only work, but provide economies, choice and quality.

That’s why we work with some of the world’s leading brands and successful home-grown businesses. Companies like Z Energy, Just Group, Ceres and Pic's Peanut Butter to name but a few.

We pride ourselves on our professionalism and safety. Through ACC, we participate in the Workplace Safety Management Practices programme and have achieved 'tertiary' level accreditation.

As an independent and proudly 100% New Zealand owned and operated company, we have a passion for people and a desire to make a difference, but more than anything else, we aim to make doing business with us an easy and enjoyable experience.
