About Us

Conlinxx is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ports of Auckland.

Our job is to facilitate efficient container movements between the seaport, the South Auckland and Waikato freight hubs and customers in the Auckland metro area.

We provide these services on behalf of Nexus Logistics, which provides integrated container logistics solutions for importers and exporters throughout New Zealand.

Environmental sustainability is a real focus in our business. Our fleet of trucks comply with Euro V emission standards – the highest standard in New Zealand today. We also work hard to minimise our road mileage through journey planning software and by utilising the rail network for container movements between the seaport and our freight hubs.
