As you will be aware, Ports of Auckland is preparing for the
partial automation of Fergusson Terminal at the end of February 2020. In
preparation for the Go Live date it is crucial that we run a number of tests to
ensure that Terminal systems and equipment perform as expected.
To perform some vital tests we require a 12 hour window to shut
down Fergusson Terminal and have chosen an off-peak time when there is the
lowest demand for both shipping and road receivals and deliveries.
On Wednesday 15 January, Fergusson Terminal will close from 1900
hours and re-open on Thursday 16 January 0700 hours to allow for the testing to
take place. The last truck will be serviced through the gate at 1815 hours on
15 January (1700 VBS bookings).
An extra free day will be applied to all vessels affected by this
outage for demurrage free time.
We acknowledge the inconvenience this outage will cause and thank
you for your co-operation.
Please be advised that Hazardous cargo must be moved within the
allowable time and reefer containers should be prioritised.
Multi Cargo Operations will not be affected.
If you have specific concerns or queries, please contact:
