Port Otago, located on the Otago Harbour of the South Island of New Zealand, is the island’s primary export port and operates two wharf systems – Port Chalmers and Dunedin – both within Otago Harbour. Port Otago benefits from a deep natural harbour, its strategic location for vessel rotation to and from deep-sea destinations and a large primary export cargo region. Port Chalmers is one of New Zealand’s two deepest container ports and services some of the largest container ships in the New Zealand trade. The port can store more than 7,000 containers and has the highest number of reefer points of any New Zealand port, with 1,850. Port Otago is 100% owned by the Otago Regional Council.
