FOUR-SIDED CONTAINER INSPECTIONS

Where an import container has been received into the port via vessel, road or rail and has been advised by the Ministry for Primary Industries as requiring a four-sided inspection, the importer or importer’s agent has two clearance options:

1. Inspection by MPI Quarantine Officers.
2. Napier Port MPI-accredited personnel undertaking the inspection on behalf of MPI.

Option two is generally favoured because it speeds up the clearing process and facilitates the movement of the container into the care of the importer or its agent. If option two is requested by the importer or the importer’s agent, a charge of $27.50 per container inspected will be incurred. This inspection can be arranged by phoning Container Administrators (06) 833 4415 or emailing opsdox@napierport.co.nz

Where option one is preferred but cannot be undertaken within a timely manner, which in turn causes a container to incur demurrage, no discount to demurrage charges will be provided. If the container inspected is required to be washed, the following charges will apply a/c importer or importer’s agent.

EXTERNAL WASH CHARGES ON FCL IMPORT CONTAINERS

Grade 1: $34.00 per TEU, $44.00 per FEU

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

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.

Vehicles are split into three categories:

1. Vehicles already cleared
2. Vehicles cleared but parked within three metres of an uncleared vehicle on the vessel
3. Uncleared vehicles
