Earlier last year, severe earthquake damages had forced CentrePort Wellington to pause operation. After the reinstatement of their gantry cranes in September 2017, operations quickly bounced back to pre-quake volumes as a result of a hands-on recovery program management.
Since identified market growth opportunities were facing capacity limitations for CentrePort’s container services, HPC was contracted to deliver an operational and organisational improvement plan. This plan focussed on volume growth and competitive service levels clustered to short and medium-term measures.
For the project time of five months, one of our operations experts stayed in Wellington to support the Client’s team on site in identfying, among others, CentrePort’s options for yard densification and productivity improvement.
After successful completion of this first assignment, we have just sent another experienced operations expert to Wellington who will continue HPC’s assistance to CentrePort, this time in terms of a long-term operational strategy development.
