CentrePort Dredging Plans Announced

CentrePort has announced plans to deepen the shipping channel in Wellington’s harbor to accommodate bigger ships and ensure on-going direct access to international markets for central New Zealand importers and exporters.

CentrePort Chief Executive, Blair O’Keeffe, said: “CentrePort supports nearly $2 billion a year of jobs and economic activity in the region and new services such as this will see that contribution grow in the future.”

They have also announced the addition of a new international container shipping service.

Commencing in November, the ‘Panama service’ operated by CMA-CGM and Marfret will take central New Zealand goods directly to the Americas and Europe.

The port has invested heavily to extend its reach into the central New Zealand hinterland. Our investments are focused on bringing the region closer to the world, by lowering cost and distance to market for local importers and exporters,” added O’Keeffe.

Other investments this year included completion of a new container terminal in Whanganui, which was recently officially opened by the Minister of Transport.

Located in Wellington, CentrePort is New Zealand’s most strategically situated intermodal hub, linking road, rail, domestic and international shipping services.
