Cruise season kicks off at new cruise terminal

Dividing Line

Auckland’s summer cruise season kicked off this month with Shed 10 on Queens Wharf welcoming the first ship to its new terminal facilities on 11 October.

The mobile gangway provided by Ports of Auckland is a specialist piece of equipment that automatically moves up and down as the ship moves with the tide and allows for the rapid transfer of passengers between the ship and Shed 10.

Auckland will receive calls from 89 cruise ships this season. Although this is less than last year's 100 cruise ships, we expect the passenger numbers to remain similar to the previous year.

  • the average time taken to turn a truck
  • the proportion of truck visits turned within 30 minutes
  • the average quantity of containers exchanged per truck visit
  • the average dwell time of import containers in the port.
