About Us

Dating back to 1897, the Scales Corporation was one of the early pioneers of the New Zealand freight and shipping business. Formed to challenge the freight rates being implemented by the large British Shipping Lines, a group of farmers approached Geo H Scales to charter ships on their behalf. In 1912 the venture became a private company.

Over the last 100 years Scales Corp,  has evolved within a constantly changing environment both in customer needs and technology. While many of its competitors have fallen into obscurity, Scales has grown, diversified and built strategies that have stood the test of time, and sought out new opportunities.

Today history repeats itself, Scales Logistic’s has formed Balance Cargo a new division that has a clear focus on Air Freight and the perishable exports that flow within it.

Identifying a vacuum  in the marketplace, Balance Cargo has been formed to provide a service that is professional, resourced with a purpose built modern facility and underpinned by technology that is flexible to the ever changing needs of our customers.

It is with this offering we enter the marketplace and with pride offer a freight solution for any requirement.
