What we do

He aha tatou mahi

CentrePort is a modern port and logistics business serving the needs of Aotearoa New Zealand.

We're much more than just a port. Our service connects importers and exporters from regional New Zealand to international markets by road and rail. 

We have a wide service area within Aotearoa 

Alongside our port in Wellington, we operate a container and bulk cargo aggregation hub in Whanganui, a container hub in Marlborough, and a log hub at Waingawa in the Wairarapa. This enables us to provide a widespread service footprint for our customers. 

We are the busiest port in New Zealand by ship movements

Our location in the centre of the country on a natural, sheltered, deep water harbour means we are well situated to offer a broad variety of cargo and logistics services. 


We create innovative solutions for our customers 

We’re constantly innovating to provide the best service to our customers, and we work closely with them to help solve logistics challenges, improve efficiency and minimise costs.
