A Century of Shipping in New Zealand, The Twentieth Century

Author(s): Gavin McLean

Shipping | New Zealand

New Zealand's shipping services have come a long way in a century. In 1900 the last sailing ships were bowing out of overseas trade to new Zealand. Steam was taking over, bringing greater speed, certainly and safety to people and their goods. Through two world wars and cycles of boom and bust, ships have continued to provide a vital economic lifeline between New Zealand and the rest of the world.
