Service Announcement New Zealand | 15 October 2021
OverviewMainfreight has received notice from two carriers that they have suspended their Auckland Port Congestion Surcharge.
This is a welcome reduction in cost for shipments transferring through the Ports of Auckland. A reduction in the delays reported between the scheduled arrival of vessels and their actual berthing time has provided carriers with more certainty when utilising Auckland Port. The reinstatement of berth windows for some services has led to improved cargo flow and better operating levels for Ports of Auckland to manage increased container volume.
A breakdown of carrier, overall cost reduction and applicable dates is provided below. We expect to see other shipping lines utilising Ports of Auckland for scheduled services to follow this precedent in the coming weeks.
All customer quotations and invoices will be adjusted with this reduction. Other carrier reductions will also be applied once notice is received.
