Change to N4 Go-Live

Dividing Line

Ports of Auckland has been working hard to implement N4, our new terminal operating system. N4 will provide us with the technological capability to sustain and grow our operations in the years to come. The system is now in its testing phase and we want to be absolutely certain that it will be working properly before we allow the system to 'go-live'.

We want to ensure that for customers the transition is seamless and we are able to continue to deliver a high level of service.

We had been hoping that the launch would happen in July this year but think it is prudent to postpone the go-live to give the N4 team time to ensure that our required quality standards are not compromised.

The project team are now undertaking a review of how much longer they will need to ensure the system is ready. We will update you on our new timeframes once this work is complete.

ArtBox NZ journeys on

The ArtBox that began its journey from Auckland in February with a cargo of Coromandel Mussels destined for New York has since travelled on. It made its way to Dubai carrying a cargo of military supplies and is currently heading to Casablanca, Morocco. Here's an image sent to us via Facebook, of the ArtBox in Tangier.

The box is due to arrive in Casablanca tomorrow with its sweet cargo of chocolates.

Where to next? Follow the ArtBox on Twitter - #ArtBoxNZ or on Ports of Auckland's Facebook page where we will post updates and images as they come through.

Truck Service Statistics

Ports of Auckland is committed to providing a consistent and timely service to road carriers, enabling import and export cargo to be picked up and delivered in a timely way. We are also committed to being totally transparent about our performance.

Performance against this commitment is measured in several ways, including:

  • the proportion of truck visits entering via the self-service kiosks (rather than by manual process in the Road Office)
  • the average time taken to turn a truck
  • the proportion of truck visits turned within 30 minutes
  • the average quantity of containers exchanged per truck visit
  • the average dwell time of import containers in the port.
