Ports of Auckland Volumes Index Update

Friday, 18 March 2005

Ports of Auckland Volumes Index Update www.poal.co.nz Total container volumes* decreased 3% to 641,232 TEUs for the 12 months to end-February 2005 (as compared to the 12 months to end-February 2004) and were down 4% on February 2004.

Full import container volumes were unchanged and full export container volumes were down 3% for the 12 months to end-February 2005. For the month of February, full imports were up 1% and full exports dropped 4%.

Transhipment** volumes fell 17% for the 12 months to end-February 2005 (as compared to the 12 months to end-February 2004) and were down 29% on February 2005. Containers comprise approximately 70% of Ports of Auckland’s throughput and about 85% of business activity.

The drop in container volumes is due mainly to the loss of a shipping service in February 2004 that at the time represented 8% of Ports of Auckland’s container volume. Breakbulk (non-containerised) volumes were up 9% to 5 million tonnes for the 12 months to end-February 2005. February 2005 volumes increased 14% on February 2004. * Container volumes are measured in TEUs (20-foot equivalent units – or the size of a standard 20-foot container).

** Transhipment containers are discharged at Auckland and reshipped on another vessel to international or other New Zealand destinations.
