Maersk Line and MISC Consolidate on Port of Tauranga

Maersk Line, the world's largest container shipping line, operating in conjunction with Malaysia International Shipping Corporation Berhad (MISC), have today announced plans to relocate their Southern Star service to Port of Tauranga (with the new port rotation: Tanjung Pelapas (Malaysia), Singapore, Tauranga, Lyttelton, Port Chalmers, Tanjung Pelapas).

Port of Tauranga Chief Executive, Mark Cairns, said Maersk Line and MISC's announcement is great news. We have been working for some time to attract a new import ship call to Tauranga to better balance our MetroPort rail shuttle service to and from Auckland. We are very pleased to confirm the announcement by Maersk Line and MISC who will now operate both their Northern and Southern Star services through Tauranga on a weekly basis, with connections through to their South East Asian hubs.

Maersk Line and MISC s new port rotation will commence on Saturday 10 December 2011 with the arrival of the vessel Euromax and will be reviewed again in June 2012, when MISC are withdrawing from container line shipping globally

Port of Tauranga is commencing a significant capital expenditure programme over the next few years to ensure that the Port continues to provide customers with world class levels of productivity.
