From Morning Report, 7:50 am on 8 March 2021

South Island exporters have breathed a sigh of relief after news more empty shipping containers will be making their way down to southern ports.

Next weekend the international shipping firm Maersk will begin a new service carting containers away from the logjammed Auckland port, down to Timaru, Lyttleton, Nelson and Dunedin.
