FROM
LPC CHAIRMAN
TREVOR BURT

LYTTELTON PORT NEEDS TO BE READY FOR WHAT THE FUTURE BRINGS. WE NEED TO THRIVE ON THE HUGE PREDICTED INCREASE IN IMPORTS AND EXPORTS.

That means being ready for bigger vessels carrying more containers – by deepening our harbour so they have access – and creating more space for freight.

LAST YEAR WAS A GAME CHANGER FOR LPC

The Lyttelton Port Recovery Plan (LPRP) achieved Ministerial approval. This is now the blueprint for our Port which is the South Island’s major international trade gateway. The LPRP is underway and has had positive community feedback.

We provide the most comprehensive shipping service in the South Island. We sit in one of the world’s top-quality food bowls, boosted by the increase in Canterbury plains irrigation. With growing global food demand and container volumes set to double in a decade, we have one end game – to be fit to service the growth and prosperity of the region and our customers.
