UPDATE: 1500hrs on Monday 23 March
New Zealand has today escalated its Public Health Alert Level from Level 2 to Level 3, with a pending escalation on Wednesday this week to Level 4.
Ports are classed as essential services under the NZ Civil Defence Emergency Management Act 2002. Northport will undertake whatever trade requirements the NZ Government imposes or allows. Additionally the port will continue to operate the Local Port Service enabling the safe passage of tankers and dry-cargo vessels transiting Whangarei Harbour.
We will update this webpage as soon as we have a better understanding of what freight will be required by authorities to continue moving into and out of Northport under Public Health Alert Levels 3 and 4.
