Lane and loading zone changes

From 4th March 2019, we will be making changes to inward lanes at the Western Gate and loading zones to prepare for the peak season.

  • Lanes 1 & 2 will be for import pick-ups and dual transactions. Use Lane A.
  • Lanes 3 & 4 will be for export drop-offs only. Use Lane B.
  • Lanes 5 & 6 will be for RFID tag holders and Port Pack.

Please note: Lanes 1 & 2 are for all transactions, including exports, however Lanes 3 & 4 are for export drop-off only.

Drivers are not to reverse while sitting in the lanes as this is hazardous. If you are in the wrong lane. talk to gate staff via the intercom and they will instruct you further.

The new lane and loading zone layouts are below:

Loading zone bays

Bays A and B: All transactions
Lane C / Bay C: NZL transactions only
