From the construction of Queen Street wharf in the 1850s until now, Auckland’s port has connected the world to Tāmaki Makaurau. As New Zealand’s largest import port, Port of Auckland has developed hand in hand with Auckland, bringing in goods we’ve needed to thrive.
From Singapore and Rotterdam, through to Sydney and Shanghai, thriving global cities depend on reliable supply chains. So, it’s no coincidence these are just some of the powerhouse cities depending on port operations. Island nations like New Zealand need comprehensive port strategies. Ports create jobs, they enable business, they reduce carbon emissions compared to other import options, and in the case of Auckland, the port provides a dividend to Auckland Council. Most of the port’s inbound cargo is for Auckland. We are proud of the role we play in Auckland’s economy and how we support Aucklanders through our dividends.
