FROM LPC
CHIEF EXECUTIVE
PETER DAVIE

IN THE LAST YEAR, LYTTELTON PORT ACHIEVED RECORD OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCY. WE MADE A 16% IMPROVEMENT IN CRANE RATES FOR LOADING AND UNLOADING VESSELS, AND DECREASED OUR TOTAL RECORDABLE INJURY FREQUENCY RATE BY 45%.

Our Port’s unmatched access to worldwide markets for South Island exporters continues to draw new customers including McCain Foods who now exports their South Island product through Lyttelton.

To strengthen our strategic relationships, we have already invested $200 million in new facilities over the last five years. We are future-proofing the Port and these are some of the steps we have taken on the journey.
