NEW ZEALAND's north island Port of Tauranga has ordered two Liebherr super post panamax ship-to-shore cranes to be delivered in 2013 and 2014, bringing the number of quay cranes to seven.

Box volumes were up 17.1 per cent at Tauranga to 344,081 TEU over a six-month period, an increase attributed to strikes at the rival Ports of Auckland.
