Napier Port is the gateway for goods flowing in and out of Central New Zealand and is at the heart of the Hawke’s Bay economy. The port is predominately an export based operation. Around 80% of exports through the Container Terminal are driven by the fresh produce season, grown in and around Hawkes Bay, resulting in the ‘peak’ season for the port and its busiest period.
At Napier Port, we are driven to find better answers for our importers and exporters by leveraging technology, innovation, and the capability of our people. We’re passionate about the safety of our people and are committed to everyone going home safely after their shift.
