The Port of Tauranga has taken the first step in what it hopes will lead to a world-wide strategic alliance of leading ports.

POT has signed a heads of agreement with the Port of Brisbane which paves the way for the two ports to share technologiy, marketing, trade information, and specialised expertise.

Port of Tauranga CEO, Jon Mayson, says the two ports share similar cargo interests, and both have strategic geographical significance.

The heads of agreement between the two ports, and a scoping framework to be developed over the next month, will form the basis of a 'Oneport' strategy which aims to have a network of ports around the globe working together.

Mr Mayson the Oneport concept is a natural extension of what POT has been doing with Metroport and more recently its joint venture with Northland Port Corporation to develop a deepwater log export port at Marsden Point.

"We have to grow our business to succeed and we see the Oneport strategy as a major driver in this growth," he says.
