Ports of Auckland has beaten competitors from Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific to be crowned Best Seaport in Oceania for the second year running.

Voted into the finals by customers and industry peers at the Asia Cargo News’ Asian Freight, Logistics and Supply Chain Awards, it was the only New Zealand port to be selected as a finalist, together with three Australian ports (Port of Melbourne, Port of Brisbane and Sydney Ports).

Ports of Auckland chief executive Tony Gibson said he was proud to accept the award as the best port in the region.

“It is a fantastic achievement for Ports of Auckland and testament to the hardworking people who keep our port running 24/7. We have a world-class group of people working here, doing their best for our customers and Aucklanders.”

The awards recognise leading air and shipping lines, air and sea ports, logistics providers and other industry professionals. Ports of Auckland was the first recipient of the ‘Best Seaport in Oceania’ award when the category was introduced in 2016, and the only recipient in this category to date.

Asia Cargo News reported votes in the thousands and said a record number of votes were submitted this year.
