To meet compliances set down by New Zealand Customs, additional costs may be incurred by an importer or their agent. Acceptance of any costs must be received by Napier Port before the container/s will be released. Should the importer or their agent not have an account with Napier Port, payment is to be made either by direct credit or cheque/cash before container release.
IMPORT X-RAY OR DEVAN/REVAN
Where an import container has been received into the port via vessel, road or rail, and a request for inspection received from New Zealand Customs, it will be moved to Shed 1 for physical inspection. An additional lift will be levied against the importer or their agent in such circumstances. Should Customs decide that a complete devan is required and the goods are to be held, the importer or their agent will be notified of further charges as applicable.
Import x-ray or devan/revan for export and import containers: $40.00 per container (includes replacement seal if required, excludes moves and lifts)
CUSTOMS EXPORT DELIVERY ORDER – NON COMPLIANCE CHARGES
In an attempt to ensure we do not penalise exporters who have provided a validated CEDO within required timeframes, we advise that it may be necessary to restrict entry for only that cargo with a pre-advised CEDO at the time of delivery to port.
The inefficiency created by non-compliant exporters can seriously impact on container terminal efficiency, therefore we draw your attention to charges that will be applied to cargo that does not load on the vessel advised:
Export containers remaining on wharf: $495.00 per seven days or part thereof, invoiced directly to the exporter involved.
For containers that do not load on the intended vessel due to a validated CEDO not being received by the Napier Port prior to the shipping line cut off (and who remain on wharf awaiting the next export opportunity). This rate excludes any power and monitoring charges. This charge reflects the additional movements, administration and storage associated with the longer-term accommodation of a container in this situation.
Export containers moving off port: A flat charge of $495.00 per seven days or part thereof will apply, invoiced directly to the exporter involved.
For containers that do not load on the intended vessel due to a validated CEDO not being received by Napier Port prior to the shipping line cut-off and which are then moved to an off-wharf location. This charge reflects that the container has used the facilities as domestic storage and not for export as intended. All charges need to be settled by the shipper prior to the movement of the container(s) involved.
Customs x-ray: $125.00 per container
Napier Port, as a Customs-Controlled Area (CCA) is required upon request to present cargo for x-ray inspection by New Zealand Customs. Cargo that has been received into the container terminal that must then be presented for inspection will incur a handling fee. This charge includes the lift out of the stack, transport to x-ray, lift back into the stack and any additional moves required to source the selected container.
If containers are selected for inspection at the time they are received i.e. are x-rayed off the receiving truck then no additional charges will be incurred. The handling fee will be recovered directly from the exporter affected.
