Shipping Industry Acts to Protect Bryde's Whales

Dividing Line

Last week, Ports of Auckland released a new protocol for large ships using the Hauraki Gulf, which is designed to make life safer for the local whale population.

The voluntary protocol, developed jointly by Ports of Auckland and the shipping industry, aims to reduce the number of collisions between whales and ships and the impact of any collisions which do occur.

Welcome to the KIX and Capricorn Services

This month Ports of Auckland welcomed two new services: MSC's Capricorn Service, which currently calls at a number of New Zealand ports and Kiwi International Express (KIX), a new vessel sharing arrangement between ANL, APL and Hanjin Shipping. Both services will call at POAL on a weekly basis.

The first vessel in the Capricorn Service called at Auckland on 5 September and the KIX service called here for the first time on 24 September.

"Auckland has traditionally been an import dominant port, but these two services also offer us great export potential between Auckland, Australia and South East Asia," Ports of Auckland Chief Executive Tony Gibson said.
