Fergusson Port & Empty Yard Closed - Update


Good morning,


Please see below alert issued by Ports of Auckland Advisory 27th August 2018.


Further to our earlier alert we would like to advise that at around 03:45 this morning one of our straddle carriers working in the container terminal tipped over.  The driver was seriously injured and is in hospital.  We are doing all we can for him, his whanau and family. 

At this stage we do not know the cause of the incident and a full investigation is underway. 

Straddle operations have stopped and Fergusson Container Terminal and Empty yard remain closed.  We do not yet know when operations will re-start, but we can say that straddle operations will remain suspended until at least

07:00 on Tuesday 28 August.


Operations at Multi-cargo are not affected.


We are endeavouring to restart empty hoist operations at the On Dock/Link Facility later today and will advise in due course when this might be achieved.


Please do not send any trucks to Fergusson Terminal or the Empty Yard until asked to do so.


All VBS for today will be cancelled and we will work with affected Carriers regarding any demurrage incurred over this time once we know when operations can resume.


Thank you for your co-operation during this time.


Keeping you informed!
