Tauranga is home to New Zealand’s largest port by volume with an annual cargo throughput of more than 13 million tonnes. It’s also the most efficient port in Australasia, so it makes sense for your exporting business to be based where the port is. Whether your customers are in Australia, Asia or further afield, it’s easy to reach them. Plus, the port is expanding capacity and maximising productivity so its well on its way to being New Zealand's Port for the Future.
Being close to the port saves your business time and money. And when your focus is on exporting, it’s great to be able to build a close working relationship with the port, face-to-face. Your business wins.
As well as the port, Tauranga’s good rail, road and air infrastructure make it easy to bring goods in and out. Smart Transport Corridors have been specifically designed to facilitate the smooth movement of traffic to and from the port, both within the sub-region and between the sub-region and other major centres.
The logistics sector is a key industry for Tauranga, with a high number of people with the skills and expertise to transport, distribute and manage the movement of freight. The local ICT Cluster has developed leading edge distribution and logistics software to support the sector and it continues to develop innovative initiatives. And on the back of projected trade and business growth, the public and private sectors are working together under the Bay of Plenty Freight Logistics Strategy to develop and implement logistics solutions that will position Tauranga as a world leader in supply chain management and global logistics.
Tauranga is already home to many high-value, innovative, export businesses and setting your business up alongside them has clear advantages. Accessible business networks are invaluable to your company as you look to expand into new export markets – wherever you want to take your business, someone in Tauranga has already done it and can share their experience.
