Notice to line operators


The introduction of verified gross mass (VGM) requirements is fast approaching. Under the new regulations, all shippers must have their containers either on the port or fully pre-advised with VGM information through the Napier Port Community Access Portal at the time the loadlist is submitted. 

From Monday 20 June 2016, Napier Port will no longer pre-advise containers that are on a shipping line loadlist. 

As part of the list of discrepancies, Napier Port will identify containers that are not yet pre-advised with VGM. If the shipper has not fully pre-advised these containers prior to the agreed cut-off, they will not be loaded.

Should you have any questions relating to VGM processes and rules, please
