Shipping restrictions – swell event forecast update
As a further update, the strong swell event arrived at Napier Port yesterday evening. Based on forecasts, the duration of this swell is now set to extend out further to Sunday morning (30 May). Please be aware that we expect to restrict shipping at our container terminal (5 Wharf) for the duration of this swell event. Given the shipping restrictions, container export receival open times will be significantly delayed. Please refer to our shipping schedule available here for the latest information on receival window timings.
We expect conditions to ease from Sunday morning (30 May), but we will be assessing the swell event constantly and will update you if there is any improvement.
Again, we appreciate that these restrictions will cause further disruption to what has already been a very challenging season. Thank you in advance for your understanding and rest assured our teams are working hard this week to manage this event as efficiently as possible.
We will be sure to be in touch with any further updates.

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).
