  • Room to Grow

    At an impressive scale of 480 hectares Ruakura will cater for your long-term growth requirements so you can plan with certainty. Consider the opportunity to consolidate from multiple locations to one site at Ruakura, driving economies of scale. The logistics precinct is 192 ha, with 30 ha dedicated to the inland port.

  • Location

    Located in Hamilton at the heart of the golden triangle between Auckland and Tauranga, Ruakura gives you access to over 2 million people in the North Island. Hamilton is an ideal location due to its transport connections, proximity to international ports, Auckland International Airport, and the number of manufacturing, health, education and freight and logistics companies that are based there.

  • Capacity

    Ruakura will develop in phases to meet cargo demand.  We are planning for a rail-served container handing capacity of 1 million TEU per annum at full development.

  • Transport infrastructure

     Ruakura offers excellent multi-modal transport links with direct connections to both the Waikato Expressway (opening late 2021) and the East Coast Main Trunk railway, efficiently connecting you to both global and domestic markets. Plans include a full 900 metre rail siding.

  • Seaport Neutrality

    Ruakura complements the seaports of Auckland and Tauranga by offering significant offport container handling capacity. It also gives importers and exporters more optionality in their supply chain through a choice of seaport and ocean carriers.

  • World Class Operations

    The inland port will be developed by LINX Cargo Care Ltd and Tainui Group Holdings.  LINX owns C3, which will operate the inland port. They will support your operations by managing receipt and delivery of containers and non-containerised cargo; container storage; coordinating cargo transfers between the port and adjacent warehousing; container packing and unpacking services.

  • Efficiency Gains

    Ruakura offers genuine scale and efficiency for importers and exporters to move cargo in a timely, cost effective manner. Large volumes of unloaded empty containers create perfect opportunities for exporters to load and return to seaports for shipping, creating a more efficient “closed loop” supply chain network benefiting all involved.
