About C3

C3 is New Zealand’s leading provider of product handling solutions, on the wharf and beyond. We have over 800 staff working in 15 ports around New Zealand and Australia.

C3 works in partnership with many major and smaller exporters, importers and shipping lines. We provide services and expertise to New Zealand Steel, RD1 Nutrition, Pan Pac Forest Products and other leading businesses.

Each year, C3 handles over 14.5 million tonnes of cargo. This includes around: 23 million logs, 3.5 million tonnes of forest products and 300,000 tonnes of steel.

Like you, we prefer to look ahead rather than behind. Even so, our past is critical to the quality of service we offer today. C3’s roots stretch back to the 1950’s, when a portside and logistics business was founded in Mount Maunganui. With decades of operations behind us, C3 offers hands-on knowledge of what’s possible, and longstanding partnerships across the industry.
