News item from Ports of Auckland
Due to the number of late arriving vessels over
this weekend with large import exchanges we are needing to preserve yard
capacity to manage peak demand. To assist in managing yard congestion and
maintain reliable Terminal productivity throughout next week we are formally
suspending acceptance of import dehires to Link for all vessels berthing
between Friday 28 August to Friday 4 September.
We have instructed PortConnect to disable Link
as a return location effective immediately.
We will of course manage export empties,
another profile we are seeing in high demand at present, based on agreed
receival periods with our Yard Planning teams. As per usual we will liaise with
Empty Carriers to meet vessel cut offs.
If the situation improves through next week we
will update and resume import dehires into Link as soon as we can.
