CLOSE to 240,000 tonnes of cargo, almost all of it logs, were loaded at the Gisborne wharf during November in one of the busiest months at Eastland Port this year.

The 12 log ships to call here were loaded with more than 236,000 tonnes of logs for export.

“Adding to the total volume of product over the wharves were three coastal consignments of fertiliser from Napier,” a port official said.

“Those three shipments into Gisborne amounted to 2270 tonnes.”
