Our transformation journey

Behind Ports of Auckland’s red fence, our people have quietly been delivering an amazing amount of change. We have achieved a number of world and New Zealand firsts. We continue to adapt to meet the demands of a growing Auckland and regional New Zealand, while also being a sustainable business. We are investing in new technology and our people to ensure we are a world-class port company. This year’s report provides a look at some of our key transformation projects.
