Our focus

At the heart of Napier Port’s strategy are four key elements that will shape the course we chart toward achieving our vision.

Customer Connection
We are committed to developing close customer relationships that help us to identify opportunities to deliver innovative logistics solutions and integrate us into our customers’ supply chains, with our business model extending beyond the port gates. We’ll use the insights gained from these connections to inform our investment decisions, both on and off the port.

Networked infrastructure
We are working to connect our customers’ cargo to market with an established and growing infrastructure network, operating as an integrated and intelligent system. We intend to enhance our reach across our catchment area and provide opportunities to develop further customer solutions, including our Thames Street depots and Whakatū land holding.
