Wood products travel overseas from seven New Zealand ports, from Southport in Bluff, to Northport in Whangārei.

Logs and other wood products travel to our ports on trucks and trains where they are loaded onto ships.

China is the biggest importer of New Zealand wood products – in 2021 they received around 57% of our wood exports by value.

Other countries that buy lots of our logs and wood products are Australia, South Korea, Japan, and the United States.
