Important Update: Incoming cyclone will affect shipping and port operations
Over the next few days, the North Island will bear the brunt of ex Tropical Cyclone Gabrielle, with severe weather conditions including heavy swell, high wind and rain expected across Hawke’s Bay from later today.
Shipping and Vessel Operations
All vessels have now vacated our berths at Napier Port ahead of the heavy swell and high winds coming through. Based on current forecasts, we are unable to work ships as usual until Wednesday morning (15 February) at the earliest. Our marine team will continue to closely monitor forecasts over the next 48 hours and provide further updates.
You can stay up to date with any disruptions to shipping services via the shipping schedule on our website.
Container Terminal Operations
Napier Port is currently open for R&D, however, as per our usual processes this may change as weather conditions develop and we will notify you should we need to cease R&D operations.
Notifications for any Container Terminal updates and closures, including R&D, Western Gate and Thames Street Depots, will be provided to transport operators via the Propel VBS system.
Eastern Gate to close at 1700 tonight
Very heavy swell is forecast to reach Napier Port later today and this evening. This may present serious risk to operations along the roadway leading to the main log yard.
The Eastern Gate will be closed from 1700 today (Monday 13 February). Napier Port will re-assess the situation at 0800 tomorrow morning (Tuesday 14 February) and provide a further update at this time.
Thank you for your understanding and stay safe.

These are known as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
