Truck congestion tackled at Lyttelton

An electronic vehicle-booking system is expected to be developed at Lyttelton Port of Christchurch within the next few months to address a growing truck congestion issue.

The post-earthquake rebuild of Canterbury and rise in commodity exports from the region has seen truck drivers complain of lengthening waiting times, with consequent impact on their bottom lines.

However, truck operators are also concerned the port company may follow overseas practice and seek to charge for booking slots if it pursues a VBS.

With the port expecting its considerable rise in recent throughput to continue, a longer-term congestion solution may come in the form of an additional inland port.
