Napier Port said it expects to see a slowdown in log exports through the port because of the coronavirus outbreak that has hit the forestry sector's biggest market - China.

The company - which is heavily dependent on the forestry sector - said its trading performance in the year to date had been in line with expectations, with log export volumes increasing by 2.9 per cent on the prior year comparable period.
