Hours

Napier Port is open for business

As an essential lifeline service, Napier Port will continue to operate during COVID-19 Alert Level 4. 

While our gates remain open and we are working hard to keep freight flowing, the port will not be permitting non-essential visitors to site.

Changes to hours of operation
Napier Port hours of operation for the Container Terminal and Thames Street Depots I and II have changed, effective from Monday 30 March.
