New Zealand Earthquakes

November 23, 2016

Dear Valued Customer;

Please be advised,  due to earthquakes and on-going aftershocks in New Zealand, Wellington Centre Port terminal has been closed after sustaining substantial damage.

Vessels will have no choice but to omit Wellington until further notice.

Therefore, COSCO shipping must declare force majeure, and will now use Nelson and Napier Port as an alternative to Wellington until the port is ready to reopen.

Thank you for your understanding that this situation is beyond our control.

With best wishes to the citizens of New Zealand at this difficult time.
