Kmart distribution centre opens at NZ's biggest inland port

From Morning Report, 8:42 am on 7 September 2023

The first distribution centre at New Zealand's biggest inland port has opened in Waikato.

An inland port operates like a coastal port, with containers moving in and out - only they are moved on trucks and trains rather than on boats.

The Waikato inland port is part of the 490-hectare Ruakura Superhub and is built to help tackle carbon emissions.

Libby Kirkby-McLeod was at the opening and has more.
