Lodge a freight claim

If your freight is damaged in transit whilst under the care of KiwiRail we may, subject to the terms and conditions of our carriage, consider a claim for damage.

In the first instance contact the KiwiRail Service Centre on 0800 351 351 or your Key Account Executive and advise them of the damage.

Written notice of any claim against KiwiRail must be received within 30 days after the delivery date or collection date as applicable. In the case of temperature-controlled freight, the notice must be received within 7 days.

If submitting a claim you are advised to complete a "claim application form".
Clearly show your consignment note number and attach any relevant supporting information such as proof of value.

When you have filled in the claim application form, send it to the Claims Supervisor, KiwiRail, Private Bag 92138, Auckland 1142.
