The Cook Islands Port Authority
The Cook Islands Ports Authority is responsible for the Ports of Avatiu on Rarotonga and Arutanga on Aitutaki. This port handles a relatively small number of twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) but it is an important logistical and supply link for the country and wider Pacific Islands.
The Port Authority provides marshaling services for the movement of containerized, break-bulk, and homogeneous cargoes through the ports. They process two major container ships per month, with current cargo tonnage in excess of 150,000 tonnes per annum.
