Ports of Auckland releases reviews of Upper North Island Supply Chain study

Independent analysis reveals major problems with a move to Northport

When the second interim report of the Upper North Island Supply Chain Study Group was released, Ports of Auckland sought advice on the report's findings. In particular, we wanted to get advice on the Economic Analysis of Upper North Island Supply Chain Scenarios carried out by consulting firm EY. 

To ensure we got a completely unbiased view, we commissioned two leading economic consultancies to review the report independently of each other. 

We believe a decision on the location of expensive and vital infrastructure such as a port for our nation's largest city should be based on facts. That is why we are releasing these reviews. 

Both reviews speak for themselves. We will make no comment other than to say that they show that there are major problems with the EY study and that the idea of moving Auckland's port to Northland is seriously flawed.​
