Preparing for Peak Season at Napier Port
In preparation for the upcoming peak produce season at Napier Port, we’ve put together some quick tips for central planners that will help to boost your productivity at Napier Port. With mobile harbour cranes working your vessels at Napier, allocating cargo to the right bays can make a big difference to crane rates.
Tips to Maximise 3 Crane Split
Central planners can make sure that all three cranes are able to work your vessel by:
- Minimising the number of containers for Napier in the bay immediately in front of the bridge
- Allowing at least one bay between cranes
- Allowing two bays between cranes where the middle crane can only swing one way
See a quick guide to productive crane splits below:
Operational Restrictions Reminder
Also, we wanted to provide a further reminder about our new operational restrictions. As noted previously and in effect since 1 September 2020, Napier Port is no longer able to work the bay directly behind the bridge of container vessels. This operational restriction is due to the construction of Napier Port’s new 6 Wharf, which is planned for completion later this year.
Accordingly, please do not plan for containers to discharge or load at Napier Port in the bay directly behind the bridge, as indicated in red in the image below. The second bay behind the bridge, any other bays aft of this and all bays forward of the bridge continue to be workable at Napier Port.
Thank you for your understanding. If you have any questions, please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org or +64 6 833 4413.

Sustainability aligned with global goals:
At the United Nations summit meeting in September 2015, world leaders adopted 17 global goals (and 169 targets) as a set of universal goals that aim to address the urgent environmental, political and economic challenges facing our world. These are known as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
