The possibility of further strikes at Ports of Auckland has forced major shipping line Maersk to shift one of its services to the Port of Tauranga, leaving the Auckland port company $20 million out of pocket.
”Maersk have explained to us that the possibility of further industrial unrest has been central to their decision to shift the service to Tauranga.”
The port company will lose 52 ship calls, 82,500 containers, and nearly $20m in revenue annually.
I guess that may mean fewer jobs. Funny how the real world operates.
