Shipping Operations Update
With mains power back on, effective tomorrow Tuesday 21 February we will be back to 24/7 vessel operations for Napier Port’s container terminal.
At this stage, we are maintaining vessel arrivals and departures to daylight hours only as we work to clear logs and storm debris from the harbour and around the port. We currently have teams allocated to this task full time. We expect to lift this restriction and commence 24/7 vessel arrivals and departures as soon as safely possible.
Additionally, our marine team are still confirming the results of a final survey of our harbour and shipping channel. In the interim, we are working directly with shipping agents to confirm any draft restrictions for vessels calling to Napier.
Eastern Gate and Bulk Cargo Operations
The Eastern Gate is open and ready for 24/7 operations. Log Cart In can commence as soon as the marshalling companies are able to operate their respective scaling stations, as well as undertake marshalling operations on port.
Supply Chain Update
With damage to regional transport infrastructure, including rail and road networks, we are working to ensure cargo keeps flowing across the region. Please do reach out to our logistics team for any assistance.
