Chair's statement

Chair Image  
Welcome to Ports of Auckland’s Annual Report for the year to June 2021. It has been another tough year for the business. The pandemic, lockdowns, supply chain disruption, our automation project and the tragic death of one of our colleagues, have put huge pressure on Ports of Auckland. I want to acknowledge up front how hard this year has been for our people and commend them for the way they have pulled together to support each other.

​COVID-19 presented us with some major challenges this year, as it did for many New Zealand businesses. In our case, as a business on the border and a critical gateway for New Zealand’s imports and exports, there have been some novel challenges which impacted both on the business generally, and personally on many of our people.

Navigating global shipping
disruption

Image

We have worked hard to keep freight moving through the port and supporting our customers, throughout the period of global supply chain disruption. The disruption and its impact on costs is maybe best represented by The World Container Index (WCI), which provides a weekly assessment of container freight rates. The WCI saw an increase of 368% from June 2020 to June 2021.

Supporting the flow of goods
through the port

Image

Our Multi-Cargo wharves have seen volumes bounce back to higher-than expected levels. We have worked with our partners to ensure we keep goods moving. Car volumes are increasing, but dwell times are being maintained at industry leading rates. We have also seen increased volumes of bulk commodities as we support the economic recovery.
