Early Gate-in for export containers
Based on feedback and requests received from the trade, export containers, on occasion, arrive prior to vessel gate opening and have to wait for the vessel gates to open. To minimise the waiting time for such containers, the terminal shall allow such containers to gate-in, in limited numbers, to support the export trade.
Early gate-in containers should be pre-informed via an additional service request (ASR) from the respective shipping line. The number of containers that may be gated-in prior to vessel gate opening hours shall remain within operational and regulatory limitations.
