Operational Update 26 November 2018

Today we would like to update you as follows

Good Morning,

Today we would like to update you as follows –

As advised in last week's Daily Updates, due to the high amount of import containers discharged from vessels over the weekend the terminal yard capacity is currently under considerable pressure. As of this morning the utilisation of the yard is sitting at 115%.

In order to increase Import pick-ups our Gate Ops Team will be managing VBS bookings manually throughout today on top of our standard allocations. We encourage Carriers to make direct contact with our Transport Coordinators to book slots for landed and cleared import containers.

We ask that Import DG containers and active reefers are prioritised for pick-ups. If you need assistance with VBS bookings for these types of containers, please contact Transport Co-ordinators.

Due to the space restrictions in the yard today we will ONLY be receiving Export containers for the following vessel:

  • Gottfried Schulte KE847R

Receival for the below vessels will commence from Tuesday 27 November:

  • Spirit of Canterbury 4048
  • ANL Elaroo 1832
  • Maersk Garonne 443N
  • Maersk Izmir 841N
  • Venetia 016N

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.

As a consequence of the ongoing pressures in the supply chain, we have decided to continue to extend the demurrage free time period by one day until 1 January 2019.

Due to the space restrictions in the yard we will manage receival of Empty Export containers directly with the Shipping Lines.
