Our Story

The city of Auckland and the port of Auckland have grown together on the Waitematā Harbour for more than 175 years. Ports of Auckland is part of the special character of our city and plays a vital role in our economy, delivering the things we need and enjoy.

Nearly three-quarters of the port’s inbound cargo is for Auckland. Our location on Auckland’s doorstep means the delivery of goods is quick, the cost of goods is low, and our carbon footprint is small. We also have a network of freight hubs throughout the North Island.

Our port connects Kiwis to the world. That banana with your breakfast and the coffee beans in your morning espresso – they came through the port. Our port also makes sure New Zealand exporters are sustainably linked to global markets, supporting local business to share their products with the world.

We’ve been voted the Best Seaport in Oceania for three years running at the Asian Freight, Logistics and Supply Chain Awards by the industry – an achievement that is testament to the hard-working people that keep our port running 24/7 and delivering for our customers and Aucklanders.
