Demurrage Relief for Wellington and Palmerston North Dry Imports

With the very difficult situation in Wellington at the moment, we are seeing a large increase in imports through Napier, however importers are struggling to clear them within  the standard free time allowance.

Napier Port doesn’t want to make a tough situation even tougher so will offer the following, until we get a clearer view of what is happening.

For Palmerston North and Wellington importers of dry cargo, free time will be extended from day of discharge + 3 days to day of discharge + 8 days. Stat days and Sundays are also free days.

We will offer this until 31st December 2016, and then review.

If you have any questions, please contact Andrew Locke, Commercial Manager, on (06) 833 4437 or
