Working Smarter to Increase Capacity

Dividing Line

Ports of Auckland has reviewed the layout of the Fergusson Terminal truck grid to improve the efficiency of trucks moving through the terminal and to accommodate increased volumes.

The new grid will have 18 truck lanes (up from the current 12), which will enable a more efficient operation and provide capacity for future growth. The new grid is expected to be completed late April.

Art-Box NZ makes first stop in round the world journey

The Art-Box NZ that was commissioned by Maersk Line and Ports of Auckland arrived at Port of Philadelphia yesterday. The container carrying a shipment of frozen Coromandel Greenshell Mussels will soon make its way to Mark Foods, New York

“We are pleased to be part of this exciting project that illuminates container shipping’s value as a driving force in connecting world markets and creating economic growth. The fact that the Art-Box is a refrigerated container further emphasizes the contribution state-of-the-art containerised technology makes to providing healthy, fresh food to markets throughout the world,” said Bill Duggan, Vice President of Refrigerated Sales, Maersk Line North America.

Follow the Art-Box on Twitter: #ArtBoxNZ. People that see the travelling Art-Box are encouraged to photograph the painted container and share their images with Maersk Line and Ports of Auckland using the hashtag #ArtBoxNZ, #MaerskLine and #PortsofAuckland...

'What we do' videos

Recently we made a series of short videos about the Port and the various roles within it.

The 12 videos, all about a minute long, are designed both for the curious onlooker and also anyone who might be wondering what it takes to get a job at the port.

The videos are being released via our YouTube channel, FaceBook and Twitter over a couple of months and will finally be loaded on our website.

You can see the first five here: Straddles, Tugs, Pilots, Engineering, Lashing.

Please feel free to share the videos with your friends and family.

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.
