Ports of Auckland Volumes Index Update

Wednesday 21 December 2005

Ports of Auckland Volumes Index Update

www.poal.co.nz

November was a very good month for Ports of Auckland with total container volumes* up 7% on November 2004. Full import and full export container volumes were up 5% and 11% respectively.

Total container volumes* for the 12 months to end-November 2005 (as compared with the 12 months to end-November 2004) were up 2% (661,885 TEUs) and full import and full export container volumes were up 5% and 4% respectively.
Containers comprise approximately 70% of Ports of Auckland’s throughput and about 85% of business activity.

Breakbulk (non-containerised) volumes were up 3% to 5.0 million tonnes for the 12 months to end-November 2005 and down 12% for the month of November. Breakbulk volumes can swing significantly as a result of ships arriving just before or just after the month end.

* Container volumes are measured in TEUs (20-foot equivalent units – or the size of a standard 20-foot container).
