DIRECT ACCESS VIA EXPRESSWAY AND RAIL
Ruakura is located where the Waikato Expressway meets the East Coast Main Trunk rail line. Locating the port and logistics facilities at the intersection of these key transport routes enables better efficiencies.
Perfectly positioned and equidistant from the ports of Auckland and Tauranga, Ruakura is at the apex of the Golden Triangle.
Ruakura is in the best possible location to efficiently access New Zealand’s population and ports. Within 20 years freight volumes across the upper North Island are expected to double.
About 50% of New Zealand’s GDP will be produced in the Golden Triangle of Hamilton, Auckland and Tauranga.
Ruakura will help reduce logistics and freight costs by allowing importers to locate near the exporters, reducing the shipping of empty containers around New Zealand.
Hamilton is at the junction of New Zealand’s most important transport links, on the doorstep of New Zealand’s favourite summer and winter holiday hot spots, winter ski fields and tourist locations. Just over an hour away is Auckland International Airport.
By nature of its geographical location Hamilton is considered one of the safest places in New Zealand, with much lower likelihood of earthquakes, tsunami or volcanic eruptions.
