Abstract

This article examines the impact of path dependency and changing institutions on the Port of Tauranga. Through an institutional lens it examines the port's development in five stages from 1945, through periods of amalgamation and containerisation in the 1960s and 1970s, and then looks at the period of reform and privatisation in the 1980s, and the legacy this created.
