One of the world’s biggest shipping companies is being told to use New Zealand crew to move empty containers from Auckland to the South Island, RNZ reports. Due to delays in the North Island, Maersk is bringing in two ships to shift containers to South Island ports, in order to meet export demands. However, the Maritime Union has said the company should be using New Zealand resources. The container-shifting operation called ‘Sirius Star’ will begin next weekend. The two Maersk ships will be operated by an entirely foreign crew, with a rotation across five New Zealand ports and two in Fiji.
