MetroPort Christchurch is a freight hub based in Rolleston and offers freight operators another option to receive, pack and distribute containerised cargo as if it were a seaport. It has both rail and road connections, giving cargo owners an efficient hub to move goods around Canterbury, and to and from PrimePort Timaru.

It will enhance competition between the ports of Lyttleton and Tauranga and will likely mean improvements in port productivity and customer service.
