Process Updates


A 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 that the correct data is being used to gate in the container, 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.

If you would like to start using pre-advice you can register for a login here.

Late Receival Request

Export containers that arrive after the cut-off for a vessel have a direct impact on operations, causing additional planning and yard moves. With early information about late cargo we can better plan the vessel load. If you're an exporter, we ask that you or your agent complete the following form and send it to us and the shipping line the container is booked with as soon as you are aware that a container will not make it to the port before the vessel cut-off.
