Inside expertise to put you in the picture
with analysis and advice

"In an increasingly complex global supply chain, transport, logistics and infrastructure are becoming key components of successful business."
Smart companies today recognise competition is increasingly between supply chains rather than products. This is why the "inside information" in NZ Transport Intelligence Business Alert is so important to your bottom line.

We’ll bring you the latest news from key sectors in the industry throughout New Zealand – and key developments from around the world, which have an impact on your business.

We won’t just tell you what is happening – we’ll also get behind the key stories and explain why – and what the implications are for you.

Each Thursday NZ Transport Intelligence Business Alert comes straight to your desk. It’s written in a concise, sharply focused manner, which is easy to read and saves you valuable time

Profit & prosper with the news that matters

We will keep you informed about the latest news with inside information and opinion you won’t find anywhere else

Government Transport Policy. We provide insights into the latest policies and legislative changes.

Auckland Congestion. The Govt has listened to Aucklanders and the CBD Rail Loop is now underway. Motorway construction is taking place at a rapid rate. Keep up to date on how Auckland’s ever worsening congestion problems are being dealt with by the city and Govt agencies.

Earthquake Disruptions. Port of Lyttelton has gone from strength to strength since the devastating earthquakes. But Wellington and Picton have suffered in the Kaikoura shake. Is NZ port infrastructure protected enough against natural disaster?

New Technology. The latest from around the world in land, sea and air transport technology developments.

Road Transport. The road transport sector is struggling for profitability, and to retain and recruit new drivers. The light and heavy vehicle fleets have different needs and challenges. Find out how the sector is tackling these issues.

Fuel Price. The price of crude oil has started to recover, albeit slowly. Find out what this means for transport businesses and their customers.

KiwiRail. Things aren’t getting any easier for the rail and ferry company which has been battling through a huge turnaround plan. It still has plenty of Govt backing, but it won’t last forever. Keep track of the state-owned company aiming to win a larger share of the national freight task.

Rail has been the problem child of the NZ transport sector for some time, with a failed privatisation, then a Government buy-back. KiwiRail is struggling to get the nation's railway more involved in the daily freight task.

Regulatory Changes. Keep informed about the latest changes to regulations such as Road User Charges, dangerous goods handling and storage, health and safety and larger vehicles.

Global Freight. The latest developments in surface and air freight services to and from NZ.

Infrastructure. Keep track of the winners and losers as vital road links are improved and some provincial routes start getting attention.

Transport Security. Changes are occurring continuously, affecting the time and cost of moving freight.

The Green Debate. The debate about emissions is still a big issue. Bio fuel, alternative energy and energy efficiency are all of crucial importance to the sector. We follow all the latest developments.

Logistics Developments. What’s next for robotics in the logistics sector, what are the latest developments in warehousing technology, and who is moving or building where?

The Government has poured huge sums into road building and the expenditure is continuing. Road improvements are crucial for productivity, but as roads are built they rapidly become congested. Who has the answer?

30 November 2017

  • This Week... As political debate intensifies on the future operations of Ports of Auckland and Northport, Port of Tauranga is urging discussions to be based on facts. PoT CEO Mark Cairns says NZ is a small country and when port investments are made, “let's have the facilities in the most logical place."
  • Petrol prices have soared to their highest level for three years, as international crude prices rise and the NZ dollar falls. The AA says the outlook “doesn’t look great” for any meaningful change before Christmas.
  • A new large fuel storage facility in Timaru has been granted resource consent. It could help drive fuel-price competition.
  • And Integrated technology and services provider EROAD says it has achieved record sales growth in its foundation NZ market and in its growing North American market. It is evaluating options to further capture the compelling growth opportunity in North America.
