Multi Cargo wharves at the Auckland seaport include the finger wharves Marsden and Captain Cook, Bledisloe, Freyberg and Jellicoe wharves in the middle of the port facility.

​Process Updates


Pre-Advice speeds up export container handling into and through the port creating efficiencies for our customers. It ensures the container is gated in with the correct information and correct loading of the export container. Pre-Advice also ensures the correct data is being used to gate the container in, reduces double handling and optimises yard stacking for vessel operations. For transport operators it means drivers spend less time at the port.  Pre-advising for Ports of Auckland is utilised in PortConnect. To arrange training please contact Customer Service.

Early / Late Receival Request 

Receival dates and times for Multi Cargo vessels are set by the individual Shipping Lines.  Please contact the relevant Shipping Line for confirmation of these dates.

Export containers that arrive 5 days prior to the vessel loading will be subject to Early Receival Fees.

Export containers that arrive after the cut-off for a vessel have a direct impact on operations, causing additional planning and yard moves. If you're an exporter, we ask that you or your agent request confirmation from the shipping line for late receival of the container.
