Auckland Container Congestion

Nexus and Conlinxx have seen a good recovery in staff numbers but understand that’s not the case across the board.

While we are hopefully nearing or over the peak of the most recent Covid outbreak in Auckland, the full impact of staffing shortages at customer warehouses is impacting container movements.

As a result, the Nexus hubs are over capacity (SAFH 144% & Southdown 100%) and increased restrictions are now required as we try everything possible to avoid turning containers away. Please ensure you review your current site storage and advise Nexus if we can deliver containers this week.

Additional capacity at SAFH has been created over the last month with the movement of our truck park which created an additional 500TEU. Schedulers are also moving boxes directly from port to customer where possible with the help of our customers, and we urge further assistance in this space. Our two new reach stackers are due into NZ next month which will create a further 400TEU of capacity. These can’t arrive soon enough.

Immediate changes mean we won’t be accepting export containers prior to the vessel receival window opening. The ‘digging out’ of boxes while we are over capacity isn’t something we can accommodate either until hub levels reduce. We don’t take these decisions lightly, but this is in the best interests of overall container flows.

A reminder that Nexus will not be accepting any detention or demurrage resulting from containers left at Port or being inaccessible within our Hubs

We appreciate the support during these unprecedented times.
