Canterbury Intermodal Freight Hub

13 January 2014
Canterbury Intermodal Freight Hub

Port of Tauranga Limited announced today that it has signed a conditional agreement with the Selwyn District Council to purchase 15 hectares of land in the Izone Industrial Park at Rolleston for development as an intermodal freight hub. The Izone development is a 180 hectare industrial park 12 kilometres south of Christchurch, with excellent road and rail connections, which has been established to cater for manufacturing, warehousing and logistics businesses.

Port of Tauranga is planning to establish an intermodal freight hub to receive, pack and distribute containerised cargo.

Port of Tauranga recently acquired a 50% shareholding in PrimePort Timaru and operates its container terminal. Establishing an intermodal freight hub at Rolleston will provide South Island exporters the option to efficiently access Timaru and similarly, importers in the Christchurch area will have the option to ship through Timaru.

The Izone Industrial Park is owned by Selwyn District Council and managed by Hughes Developments Limited.
