Mana Transport put into liquidation

5:05 pm on 14 February 2015

A Porirua-based transport company facing insolvency has been put into liquidation.

Mana Transport, which merged with A-One Movers a year ago, specialised in fragile freight with a fleet of 35 vehicles and other depots in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

Both companies have now been liquidated.

Preliminary documents filed by the liquidators show Mana Transport owes at least $3 million to creditors, including $775,000 to Inland Revenue, although those figures are thought to be understated.

The company is owed about $500,000 but some customers withheld payments in recent months.
