Ports of Auckland - Update #9

Hi, please see the following Port of Auckland update as of a few minutes ago. Please note that for today, Friday 21 September, they have advised that from 1900 hours to 0700 hours on Saturday 22 September R&D operations will work with limited capacity. This will have a major impact on our ability to pick up containers as when they say R&D they refer to moves within the Port area and loading onto trucks to dispatch from the Port. Rest assured Mondiale will do everything in power over the weekend to uplift as many containers as we can. We will update you again on Monday.
