Shipping line schedules

Dear Customers,

Recent shipping service changes and congestion issues at other New Zealand ports have created a few scheduling issues at Port Nelson in recent weeks. This has resulted in changes to cargo receival times to meet carrier demurrage and detention free time arrangements.

The main impact of the above is generally with regards to trans-shipment cargoes on the Spirit of Canterbury. To minimise issues surrounding receival of containers back to Port Nelson, please confirm with Port Nelson cargo reception prior to sending cargo back to Port Nelson.
