To ensure smoother gate operations, Port of Auckland (POAL) requires 'Storage Pre-Advice' for Empty containers entering LINK facility at the Fergusson Container Terminal.
PortConnect automatically sends Storage Pre-Advice when the empty return depot of an Import is specified as LINK at gate out. The gate out can occur at either Port of Auckland or Port of Tauranga.
PortConnect also offers shipping lines the ability to pre-advise empty containers for the LINK depot on an ad-hoc basis. This is offered via a Storage Pre-Advice API. The Storage Pre-Advice is only intended for use when containers have already gated out from POAL or when they discharged from a port other than POAL.
