We are pleased to advise that the Napier Port Container Terminal, Thames Street I and II Depots will now open at 0700 starting tomorrow – Wednesday 1 September. Operations will still cease between 1430 and 1530 to allow for our Heavy Plant Operating teams to clean equipment prior to shift change and avoid team crossover from one shift to another. Thank you for your continued support and cooperation.
Changes to R&D Hours of Operation
Napier Port R&D hours of operation will change effective from tomorrow Wednesday 1 September as below.
Propel VBS booking slots have been adjusted to reflect the new hours of operation. Transport operators have already been advised of these changes directly via a separate email.
