Draft minutes from the Fisheries Liaison Group meeting on Wednesday 17 March 2021 are now available.
Unprecedented schedule unreliability is continuing to cause significant challenges across the current export peak season due to ongoing congestion across the wider supply chain. In order to proactively manage the flow of cargo through Napier Port and to provide certainty and guarantee our level of service to our customers, we have made the difficult decision to reduce our current container receival window to a new Six Day Container Receival Window starting effective from 6:00am Monday 29 March 2021.
Due to continued schedule unreliability, we are no longer able to accept any dry or reefer containers prior to their seven-day container receival window opens. Certain exemptions have been made to date and this will no longer be possible. This new process is effective immediately – today Friday 19 March, and will continue until further notice.
As a result of today’s tsunami evacuation and the disruptions to our operations and the local supply chain, we will be extending our hours of operation. Read on for further details.
