Fergusson Terminal Operations Update

Good afternoon


Today we would like to update you as follows –



  • Alongside and working: MSC Carla;
  • Arriving today: Cape Marin;
  • Arriving tomorrow: Aglaia and ANL Emora.


Please continue to monitor Ports of Auckland website for changes in the vessel schedules.


VBS bookings are being managed by our Gate Ops team, working with the trucking companies to ensure the most effective road exchange operation.


For today, Thursday 20 September, we have to advise that from 1900 hours to 0700 hours on Friday 21 September R&D operations will work with limited capacity. We request that transport companies keep to booking times as far as possible to avoid congestion.



Trucking Companies will receive priority bookings for Hazardous and Reefer import containers. Please note that there will be no extra free time for DG containers and reefer containers – including power charges. Demurrage for all other units has been extended for the meantime.



For the next 24 hours priority will be given only to Export containers for:

  • ANL Emora;
  • Sima Giselle; and
  • Spirit of Hamburg.


We request 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.


Due to the space restrictions in the yard we will manage receival of Empty export containers directly with the Shipping Lines. The On Dock Link facility remains open for de-hire of Empties.


We will update you again on Friday afternoon.
