Story: Freight and warehousing



MetroPort, located in Auckland’s industrial, warehousing and distribution area, was set up in 1999 by the Port of Tauranga. Close to several major arterial routes, with a train link to the Tauranga container terminal and its own railway siding, MetroPort is a customs bonded area and fully licensed Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry site. It allows Port of Tauranga to operate within the Auckland area as well as the Bay of Plenty and the central North Island.
