Ports of Auckland Round the Bays, New Zealand's largest mass-participation event will be held on Sunday 09 March 2014.

Sign up for the fun run here and book a BBQ site here. There are limited sites available so get in quick.

This year since BBQ sites are limited to Madills Farm, POAL's site will be located near the finish line at Vellenoweth Green. As such, we will not have the 'Shipping Lane' available for BBQ sites.

Proceeds from the 2013 Ports of Auckland Round the Bays will benefit the following charities:

  • Radio Lollipop will receive funds for new studio equipment.
  • The Hearing House will use the funding to funds raised will provide for new equipment – a tympanometer and audiometer

  • Auckland Cystic Fibrosis Branch - Exercise grant – encouraging participation in physical exercise to positively affect quality of life.
  • Raukatauri Music Therapy Trust - Six months of subsidised music therapy sessions for 10 children.

New Ports of Auckland Logo

From 2014, you’ll start to see a new Ports of Auckland logo appearing around the place. We decided to refresh our old logo to mark a change in how this port is operating. Over the last three years our aim has been to modernise the port, to lift our game and keep up with the best. We're looking worldwide for best practice and making our own innovations here so that we can deliver better service to our customers.

We decided to refresh the logo, to publicly mark the changes that have been taking place behind the scenes. The new design is an evolution of our existing logo, but has brighter, fresher more modern feel. We hope you like it.

Truck Service Statistics

The latest truck services statistics report is now available. Ports of Auckland is committed to providing a consistent and timely service to road carriers, enabling import and export cargo to be picked up and delivered in a timely way. We are also committed to being totally transparent about our performance.

Performance against this commitment is measured in several ways, including:

  • the proportion of truck visits entering via the self-service kiosks (rather than by manual process in the Road Office)
  • 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.
