Operational Update - Daily Update

The Ports of Auckland (POAL) 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, the POAL Gate Ops Team will be managing VBS bookings manually throughout today on top of our standard allocations. POAL encourages carriers to make direct contact with our transport coordinators to book slots for landed and cleared import containers.

POAL asks 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 Coordinators.

Due to the space restrictions in the yard today POAL will only be receiving export containers for the following vessel:

  • Gottfried Schulte KE847R

Receival for the below vessels commences on Tuesday 27 November 2018

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

POAL requests 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.
