Construction has begun on the new Waikato Freight Hub development on 33 hectares of land at Northgate Business Park. The site located 8km north of Hamilton is blessed with excellent road and rail connections, with immediate connectivity to SH1 and the main trunk line.
The new freight hub will not only help us achieve our core strategy of reducing freight costs by balancing freight flows and elimating unnecessary movement of empty containers, but will vastly improve access to overseas markets and reduce costs for Waikato based exporters.
The Waikato Freight Hub will service the Waikato and surrounding regions. When complete this state-of-the-art intermodal facility will consist of rail sidings, container yards, warehousing, as well as multi-use cross dock facilities.
The site is expected to be fully operational by mid-2019.
