The purpose of the Upper North Island Freight Story is to take a partnership approach within an upper North Island ‘freight lens’ to determine issues or areas that are limiting our ability to ‘reduce the cost to do business in New Zealand’.

The partner organisations have worked together, with NZTA, KiwiRail and Auckland Transport, industry and freight operators to decide on the key critical issues and opportunities where the collective partner focus could help deliver freight efficiencies, and to create a shared evidence base that will enable better future decision making.

The Story comprises two key documents:

Summary of Critical Issues [PDF, 8.5 MB]
Shared Evidence Base for the Critical Issues [PDF, 5.2 MB]
