Operational Update 1 October 2018

Today we would like to update you as follows

​​Good Afternoon,

Today we would like to update you as follows -


  • Alongside and working: Seasmile;
  • Arriving tomorrow: ANL Warrnambool

Please continue to monitor Ports of Auckland website for changes in the vessel schedules.

VBS bookings are being managed by our Gate Ops team, working with the trucking companies to ensure the most effective road exchange operation.


Trucking Companies will receive priority bookings for Hazardous and Reefer import containers. Please note that there will be no extra free time for DG containers and reefer containers – including power charges. Demurrage for all other units has been extended for the meantime.


We are currently receiving Export containers for the following vessel:

  • Northern Diplomat KE839A / 839R

Receival for the following vessels will commence from 0600 on Tuesday 2 October:

  • ANL Elanora;
  • Spirit of Canterbury;
  • Spirit of Shanghai; and
  • JPO Tucana

We request rail users refrain from sending Export Containers that are not for the above mentioned vessels. Containers that are booked to load later vessels will not be unloaded from the train and will be returned.

Due to the space restrictions in the yard we will manage receival of Empty export containers directly with the Shipping Lines. The On Dock Link facility remains open for de-hire of Empties with exception of containers operated by Maersk / Hamburg Sud. For further details and alternative arrangements please liaise directly with Maersk Line.

We will update you again on Tuesday afternoon.
