Our staff are our most valuable resource and according to our customers are what separates SSA New Zealand from our competition. The quality of our permanent and casual staff have been cited as the determining factor in securing many long term contracts.

We are proud of our position as a truly local employer and believe in hiring local staff who have a vested interest in the long term sustainability of their port and its service providers.

Training is a priority for SSA New Zealand. Programs are designed to achieve excellence in waterfront working procedures, and set standards for safety practices and work methods.

Communication across all staff with the aim of continual improvement is a key driver in the company’s success. The outcome of this is an engaged workforce which handles cargo more efficiently than ever before. Accident frequency is reduced, absenteeism is negligible and work attitudes are positive – resulting in higher productivity.
