Port Taranaki Specific

· Port Taranaki is New Zealand’s oil and gas hub and Kingston’s operations office is located a short distance from the boundaries of Port Taranaki. As a significant level of Kingston’s core business is based on providing Agency and Logistic services combined with our close proximity to Port Taranaki, this results in Kingston offering many benefits our competitors cannot.
