Ports of Auckland and Move Logistics is due today to begin operating a new container facility at the Wiri depot in south Auckland.

Reinhold Goeschl, the port's supply chain general manager, said a new building had been developed at the existing south Auckland freight hub between Wiri Station Rd and the Southern Motorway.

The warehouse-style development is for freight to go in and out of, he said.

The building is just over a third of a hectare or 3500sq m with a 1150sq m yard and a 200sq m office.

"This completes the principle develoment of a one-stop freight hub at Wiri," he said.

It will speed up freight processing into and of New Zealand.
