Napier Port Operations Status Update: Friday 17 February
Napier Port reopened restricted R&D in the Container Terminal yesterday and will continue to operate these services as below. The Western Gate is now fully operational for access through to the Container Terminal.
Napier Port is still without mains power today, while telecommunications connectivity continues to improve in the local area.

Supply Chain Update
The Hawke’s Bay Expressway has now reopened. Please be sure to check with Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency for the most up to date restrictions. With damage to regional transport infrastructure, including rail and road networks, we are working to ensure cargo keeps flowing across the region.
Napier Port’s logistics team
Please contact us to help to organise transport to your site:
Our team – Matt Gittings: 027 263 1902 or Nicolas Ganivet: 027 213 7278.
Please note, our mobile coverage is not robust but we do have internet connection, therefore you may need to try both email and mobile.
Shipping Operations Update
Our marine team have now carried out a detailed survey of the port’s shipping channel, confirming there is minimal impact from the storm.
Limited shipping has recommenced with a fuel tanker berthing at Napier Port this morning to replenish fuel stocks locally, and the HMNZS Te Mana due to berth this afternoon to support the region’s emergency response.
The MSC Astrid III container vessel is scheduled to berth tomorrow morning.
Please note there will be certain shipping operations restrictions in place until full telecommunications connectivity and power is restored. Further details to follow.
While Napier Port remains in a position to accept cruise ship visits, the greater Napier region is not able to accommodate an influx of visitors at this stage. In agreement with Napier City Council, we have decided to make the decision that cruise ship calls will not call Napier for the next week, ending Sunday 26 February. This time will enable the region to work on recovery and clean up, while we await the reinstatement of the electrical supply to the region.
Eastern Gate and Bulk Cargo Operations
The Eastern Gate will reopen this afternoon from 1500.
Log yard operations are currently hampered by telecommunications connectivity and marshalling capacity, with C3 and ISO still working to confirm the welfare of all their people. Note, there will likely be minimal cart into the port initially due to damage to regional transport infrastructure.
We are working with shipping agents directly to confirm when logging vessels can berth safely at port.
Napier Port will continue to make operations assessments on a regular basis, however, ongoing status updates will only be provided as relevant information comes to hand.
Thank you for your understanding and stay safe.
