Welcome to Northport

 Providing Deep Water Access to the World

Northport offers three berths for unloading cargo to Northland, New Zealand

Northport  - the deep water commercial port facility at Marsden Point - is situated in Northland at the entrance to Whangarei Harbour, making it the northernmost multi-purpose port in New Zealand, and the closest port to the majority of New Zealand's international markets.

Northport is:

  • Served by a good road connection to the country’s State Highway network.
  • Less than  two hours from Auckland, New Zealand’s main city, business centre and commercial link to the Central North Island.
  • The closest port in New Zealand to most international markets.
  • Purpose built to be flexible to be able to cater for a wide range of cargoes and their associated vessel types.

Northport is New Zealand’s newest port facility and although primarily built for the export of Northland’s forest products, the terminal's multipurpose facility caters for a wide range of cargoes and their associated vessel types, including logs, woodchips, veneer, kiwifruit, cement and fertiliser.

Northland as a province has much to offer international markets particularly in forestry, processed timber products, agricultural and  horticultural products, and cement; these commodities are all exported through Northport.

Northport is key infrastructure facilitating growth within the Northland region and is strategically positioned to be New Zealand’s port for the future.
