Approximately 92% of all freight (by weight) is transported within New Zealand by road.  Rail infrastructure projects including line and locomotive upgrade plans are now underway and when completed will help transport commodities from regional New Zealand to this country’s main port cities (Auckland, Tauranga, Wellington and Lyttleton.) 

New Zealand industries across the board are receptive to new and innovative technologies that reduce costs and increase productivity.  Agribusiness, New Zealand’s leading business sector, is an example where mechanization and digital technologies are linked to farm production.

New Zealand’s market size is ideal for New-To-Export companies and for testing New-To-Market products.
