NEW TERMINAL OPERATING SYSTEM
Since our last update no new issues have surfaced and we continue to work to improve productivity levels. Vessel and rail loading performance remain below the targets we need to achieve. We are working to reduce further the number of rail misses and we recognise that performance in all areas is not good enough.
Overall quayside volume last week was 66,000 TEU and productivity was 80% of pre go-live levels. Nearly 5,000 containers were loaded to rail and over 21,000 road hauliers serviced. Average haulier turnaround times have stabilised at 46 minutes. A number of initiatives have been implemented to further enhance yard productivity. These enhancements will also improve vessel, rail and road loading times.
A new area for empty storage will be opened behind Berths 8&9 on 14 July. The new yard will provide capacity for an additional 4,200 TEU of empty storage and will facilitate quicker loading of empties to outbound vessels.
In the coming week, the focus will be on further improvements to yard operations which will, in turn, improve vessel and rail loading cycles.
The ongoing support of our customers during this difficult period is greatly appreciated. We are continuing to work closely with our shipping line customers to minimise disruption and we apologise to any port users who are continuing to experience delays and inconvenience.
We remain fully focused on rectifying this situation as soon as possible.
