Commission grants clearance to Port of Tauranga

24 September 2004-05/036

Commission grants clearance to Port of Tauranga and Toll

The Commerce Commission has cleared the acquisition by a yet to be formed joint venture company, Newco, owned 50 percent by Port of Tauranga Limited and 50 percent by Toll Limited, of all the shares in The Owens Cargo Company Limited, Toll Logistics (NZ) Limited and Leonard and Dingley Limited.

In making its decision, the Commission considered a number of markets involving the provision of land-based services for the import and export of different types of cargo.

Commission Chair Paula Rebstock said the Commission was satisfied that the proposed acquisition would not have, nor would be likely to have the effect of substantially lessening competition in any of the relevant markets due to existing competition or countervailing power in those markets.

A public version of the Commission’s decision will be available shortly on the Commission’s website, under Adjudication.
