Providing a range of marine services, cargo and container shipping, the port is also stationed to service import and export industries including timber, dairy, meat, fisheries and aluminum. With their recent Intermodal Freight development, the Port is set to continue to grow as efficiency of access to containers is increased.

 

One Port, A Million Moving Parts

The port has large equipment and lots of moving parts which makes health, safety and security imperative. Forklifts, vehicles, machinery, even trains… the number of hazards in the Port is high, so a strict set of health and safety rules apply at all times. Abiding by the regulations is South Port’s top priority. Personal protective equipment plays a key role in keeping staff and visitors safe on site, and Apparelmaster helps to keep them clean and in perfect condition, leaving South Port with one less regulation to worry about.

 

Thanks to Apparelmaster

Apparelmaster provides South Port New Zealand with workwear services, which is vital in keeping the staff safe. This includes high-visibility overalls, bib overalls and heavy jackets, as well as high-visibility vests. Because South Port has a high importance on health and safety, the apparel is laundered and repaired to the highest of standards by McCallums Apparelmaster, keeping all garments in the Port compliant. Apparelmaster also supplies South Port with various workplace solutions including towels, tea towels, mats and their NOG service - Not Our Garments – where Apparelmaster washes gear that they do not provide. This is especially helpful when boats are passing through the Port.
