what our customers have to say about us

 

“Using a 3PL provider can be nerve-racking. You entrust your inventory into someone else’s care and relying on other people to take the same care of your products, as you would in terms of storage, transportation, and presentation. When it comes to Tomoana they are meticulous, have fantastic staff and great gear – we couldn’t ask for better!”

“Agritrade manufactures and distributes products for farmer and grower production, agronomy, animal nutrition, land development and crop/orchard inputs throughout New Zealand. They are the distribution arm for PGG Wrightson and have two distribution centres in Hamilton and Rolleston.

A few years ago, we were looking for a port based 3PL to help us improve our offshore flow. With operations located close to the Napier and Tauranga ports, we chose to partner with Tomoana Warehousing, and we haven’t been let down. Their service is exceptional, and it’s only gotten better. Whenever there’s a problem, Tomoana look at the outcome first and then reverse engineer it from there to get the best results for everyone. I believe you can’t have great service without great people. Tomoana has great people, and for us, it all comes down to that. They are like family; they look after their own.”

“Outsourcing of our transport and warehousing to specialists has been a great move. It allows us to save time and hassle by letting us focus our energy on growth without being hamstrung by our own resources” 

“The Natural Food Group has always had a strong focus on sales and marketing which has resulted in year on year growth for the past 10 years. Partnering with Tomoana Warehousing has been an important part of our growth strategy allowing us to scale up quickly as sales dictates. Some of our favourite features of working with Tomoana would have to be their fantastic customer service, broad scope of services and the fact they make our business easier to manage, because we know what’s going to happen and therefore everything can run like clockwork.

As a 3PL logistics provider, Tomoana is well geared up for an account like ours. We utilise a broad range of their transport, warehousing, devanning, MPI approved facility and local delivery services across both large and small unit movements.

what our customers have to say about us

 

“In any given year Tomoana move in excess of 5000 containers for us”

“Through various different entities and transport routes we have been working with Tomoana Warehousing for about 10 years. Tomoana look after one of our busiest road container laneways transporting UHT milk to the Port of Tauranga. Many of our clients have highly seasonal and often regional plants, making it really important for us to partner with strong national transport providers.

As a company we don’t allow for very much margin of error, so it’s crucial for us to pick transport providers that not only offer a reliable and high quality service, but deeply understand the complexities required to meet all necessary compliance and safety requirements, whilst balancing this alongside tight port delivery windows and fluctuating seasonal peaks.”

what our customers have to say about us

 

“We continue to partner with Tomoana because they have a great team, any problems are sorted quickly and they focus on getting the job done right. That puts them up high in our books.”

“About four years ago we undertook a review process of our transport and logistics movements with a key focus on looking for opportunities for efficiencies, specifically around the Tauranga, Wellington and Napier ports. Given Tomoana Warehousing have their core functions operating in Hastings and Tauranga the choice for us was a very strategic one that provided mutual benefits and efficiencies for both us and them. We have been working with Tomoana since then and now move nearly half of our annual export containers through them.

From day one, Tomoana have been very approachable, are quick to provide solutions and they always pick up the phone. From time to time, we have different requirements out of the normal day to day, however Tomoana have the flexibility and fleet to get the job done – nothing seems to phase them. They are proactive and always look at the transport solution as a whole.”
